Skipper Smriti Mandhana and Perry were outstanding in RCB's convincing 23-run win overpowering Alyssa Healy's side for the second time this WPL season. However, the talk of the town last night traces to something beyond the battlefield. It is the display car parked at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium which suffered a shattered window from a cricket ball hit by the RCB all-rounder in the penultimate ball of the 19th over thrown by Deepti Sharma.

The extraordinary six crossed the stadium ropes, beyond everyone's reach and went viral on the internet since. The best part came when the Australian cricketer reacted to her amazing action, she laughed, with hands on her head said, "I was bit a worried. I don't have any insurance here" in the post-match press conference.

Team's captain Mandhana's 80 runs off 50 with 10 fours and 3 sixes and Perry's 58 off 37 balls with 4 fours and 4 sixes added 95 runs off just 64 balls for the second wicket as Royal Challengers made a formidable total of 198 for three. Unfortunately, the Warriorz’s chase did not go well with the exception of a fifty by their captain Alyssa Healy. Their innings ended at 175/8.
