First innings

  • Matthews and Sajana combined for a 43-run opening partnership. What occurred following that? Ellyse Perry occurred.
  • She performed an incredible clinic with the ball and tormented the woodwork with a variety of nip-backers.
  • After grabbing a brilliant catch to eliminate Matthews, Perry wreaked havoc with the ball, bowling four overs in a row, including the finest bowling performance in WPL history.
  • She took no wickets in her first nine deliveries and six in her following fifteen. 4 bowled and 2 lbw. To recap, that is possibly one of the finest spells of bowling you will ever see in T20 cricket.
  • With 114 runs, RCB will be through.

Second Innings

  • The only phase that Mumbai won was when they had a decent first few overs where they scored 43 for the loss of just one wicket right at the edge of the powerplay.
  • Post that, Perry made the ball talk with her fiery nip-backers and made the Mumbai batters dance to her tunes.
  • Chasing a low score, RCB lost 3 wickets for 39, but the pair of Perry and Richa ensured no further hiccups to help their side get past the winning line.
  • Sciver-Brunt had a shocker of a day in the field where she dropped 2 absolute sitters and looked a bit sloppy while fielding as well.
  • That said, RCB never panicked and always had the chase under control.
