WPL 2023, GG vs RCB: Gujarat Giants Record Their First WPL Win By Beating Royal Challengers Bangalore By 11 Runs - In Pics

Gujarat Giants handed Royal Challengers Bangalore their third consecutive defeat in the Women's Premier League (WPL) by winning a high-scoring contest by 11 runs to record their first victory after three matches. Splendid half-centuries from Sophia Dunkley (65) and Harleen Deol (67) propelled Gujarat Giants to a formidable 201 for 7 after batting first. In reply, GG bowlers did a fair job, restricting RCB to 190 for 6 in their 20 overs. RCB opener and New Zealand batter Sophie Devine largely played a lone hand in their chase, hitting a well-made 66 from 45 balls with eight fours and two sixes. Towards the end, Heather Knight (30 not out off 11 balls) provided RCB a glimmer of hope, but the challenge of scoring 33 runs off the last two overs and 24 off the final over proved too much for the Bangalore side.
