Delhi Capitals, who played hard in the first two matches of the Women’s Premier League, crashed in the match against Mumbai Indians. The batters of that team competed to reach the pavilion due to the pressure of the Mumbai bowlers. Except for Delhi captain Meg Lanning (43 off 41 balls, 5 fours) and Jemima Rodrigues (25 off 18 balls, 3 fours), all others struggled to score single digits. As a result, Delhi was limited to 105 runs in 18 overs. Mumbai’s bowlers, Ishaq and Wong, were in Delhi’s dismay.

Delhi Capitals, who won the toss and batted first, did not get off to a good start. The team’s opener Shafali Verma (2) along with Alice Capsi (6), Marijane Kapp (2), Jess Jonassen (2) who came in one down came and went.

Rodrigues hit a hat-trick of fours in the 8th over bowled by Seaver. However, from the start, Mumbai bowlers bowled hard and Delhi managed to score only 58 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in ten overs.

Lanning hit three fours in the 11th over bowled by Amelia Kerr. Ishaq bowled Rodrigues, who was playing hard, on the second ball of the 12th over. On the last ball of the same over, Lanning also gave a catch to Mumbai skipper Harmanpreet Kaur and turned back.
