    Kaur walks back

    Oh dear, not again. Kaur has been run out at another crucial moment in the game

  • 10:25 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    37 needed off 24

    Kaur and Sciver have steadied the ship as Mumbai are closing in on a win now. Just 37 needed off 24 but don't go anywhere as things can spice up.

  • 10:09 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Kaur, Sciver displaying class

    Kaur and Sciver are playing a well calculated knock as they are in no hurry and are freeing their hands. The required rate is still under 8 with a little over than 7 overs remain. This match is sitting on the knife edge.

  • 10:01 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    81 needed off 60

    It's getting interesting. Mumbai are beginning to free their hands and Capitals are fighting for each and every run. 81 are needed off 60 and the batters would be knowing it can be done if they take it deep.

  • 9:53 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Time out

    Here's the first time out. Gosh!! This match is surely far from over and is now titling a bit in Delhi's favour. Lanning and company are asking some tough questions as Mumbai batters are not able to free themselves. Kaur and Nat Sciver in middle and MI ar 36/2 after 8.

  • 9:45 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Mumbai 27/2 after 6

    Ohh, this is a delicate time in the final. Mumbai are in a bit of trouble too as not many runs have come. Harmanpreet and Nat Sciver are in the middle but they are not able to get going. The required rate is inching towards 8.


  • 9:36 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Matthews caught out

    Jess Jonassen strikes and its the second opener of Mumbai, who goes back. This was a fuller length ball and Matthews did not middle it. Just pushed it towards mid-on for a soft dismissal. Delhi can sense something here. Harmanpreet now comes in.

  • 9:26 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Yastika goes back

    And there's the first wicket. Radha has got the much-needed wicket as Yastika has been caught at the boundary on the leg side. Mumbai are 1 down. Here comes Mumbai's star- Nat Sciver. Delhi need to get her quickly.

  • 9:22 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    We are back

    Mumbai begin chase with Matthews and Yastika in middle. Kapp to start for DCW

  • 9:07 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Capitals get 131

    Shikha Pandey and Radha Yadav have brought the Capitals out of the dust. 52 run stand in 24 balls for the final wicket to help their side get to some total there. This match is far from over. A tournament final with 131 on the board with 20 overs to play, Mumbai will not say it's a cakewalk as nerves do play their game. It played when the Capitals batters were batting as they fell like a pack of cards. But what a time to rescue them. Last wicket and it stitched a 52-run stand. That fightback from DCW. Radha smashed two sixes off the final two balls. Mumbai shall get this but Delhi are surely in the contest now. Back with the chase.

  • 8:57 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Capitals go past 100

    Shikha Pandey is getting some very crucial runs as the Capitals have gone past 100. Can she guide them past 125? Wong has leaked 20 runs in the 19th as this partnership is now 36 off 18 balls.

  • 8:50 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Matthews ends dream spell

    Matthews has bowled a dream spell in the final. My Goodness, have you seen these figures- 4 overs, 5 runs, 2 maidens, and 3 wickets in a T20 game? Mindblowing numbers. She takes the purple cap as well. She is tied on 16 with Ecclestone and has better Economy. Shikha and Radha are trying to get crucial runs.

  • 8:47 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Bhatia goes

    Matthews has gone berserk. What a ball this was to get Taniya Bhatia clean-bowled. It pitched outside off and spun sharply to beat the batter. Lanning in the dugout is disappointed.

  • 8:45 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Minnu stumped out

    And the flow of wickets continues as Minnu has now been stumped out. 

  • 8:37 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Time out

    It's the second time-out of the innings. What are we seeing? Capitals are all in mess and Mumbai are roaring loud. The capitals are 77/7 after 14 and are finding it really hard. Is the pitch assisting bowlers or have the batters gifted some wickets? Yes, there is some helpo for the bowlers but I guess it's the latter thing happening. How much can they get now?

  • 8:32 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Capitals in mess

    And Capitals keep losing wickets and this time Arundhati walks back as she has been caught. Capitals 6 down. Oh no!! Make it 7. Jonassen has handed this one straight to Hayley and MIW are cock-a-hoop.

  • 8:27 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Body blow for Delhi

    And it's Lanning who has been run out. This is a serious blow and a big one to the Capitals. Jonassen pushed it to the off-side and they ran. But Lanning has been caught well short of her crease. What are they doing there?

  • 8:22 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Kapp goes back

    And now Amelia Kerr joins the wicket-takers column This was a good ball on a good length and held its line. Kapp tried defending it and finds a tickle as Yastika grabs it. The partnership was growing and was of 38 runs but Mumbai have managed to break it as DCW are 4 down.

  • 8:09 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik


    It's time to make some strategies. Delhi are at 53/3 after 8 overs as Mumbai are ahead at the moment. Lanning is still there and is scoring well but Kapp is finding it hard to score.

  • 7:59 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    DCW 38/3 after 6

    And DCW have lost three of their big names in the powerplay. It's Shafali, Capsey and Rodrigues back and all fell to Wong's full-tosses. Lanning is the key now along with Kapp.

  • 7:56 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Wong is doing it for MIW

    Wong has now taken her third and has got the wicket of Jemimah Rodrigues. This is excellent from the MI bowler. This was another full-toss but a lower one this time as Rodrigues tried slicing it between point and backward point. But a good take by the point fielder. DCW are in trouble. Kapp now comes in

  • 7:49 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Delhi reply back

    Delhi are replying well with Rodrigues, and Lanning taking a counter-attacking approach. A crucial phase in the innings as Ishaque has come to bowl the 4th over of the game.

  • 7:42 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Wong gets Capsey

    Make it two. This is what perfect starts are called. Won first got Shafali on high full toss and now Capsey on another full toss. MIW are off to some start.

  • 7:41 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Wong gets Shafali

    Wong has got the first wicket. She has got Shafali caught out. Was this no-ball? It has been checked and it's not a no-ball. Out!!

  • 7:33 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    DCW look for solid start

    And the action is underway at the CCI. Lanning and Shafalia are out in the middle. Nat Sciver starts for DC. 

  • 7:17 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    An equally lethal team

  • 7:16 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    This is some line-up

  • 7:08 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Anjum Chopra on Shafali

    In the pre-show on Sports18, former cricketer Anjum Chopra spoke about DC batter Shafali Verma. She said that as DCW are batting first, if Shafali manages to absorb pressure and perform, the powerplay will make the crowd roar and set the platform in the final.

  • 7:06 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Delhi's Playing XI

    Meg Lanning(c), Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Marizanne Kapp, Alice Capsey, Jess Jonassen, Arundhati Reddy, Taniya Bhatia(w), Radha Yadav, Shikha Pandey, Minnu Mani

  • 7:05 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Mumbai's Playing XI

    Yastika Bhatia(w), Hayley Matthews, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Melie Kerr, Pooja Vastrakar, Issy Wong, Amanjot Kaur, Humaira Kazi, Jintimani Kalita, Saika Ishaque

  • 7:04 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    DC opt to bat, make one change

    DCW have won the toss and have opted to bat first. Harmanpreet wanted to bowl first anyway. One change for DCW- Minnu Mani comes in for Poonam Yadav. No changes for MIW

  • 6:57 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Players to watch out

    Both teams are sort of evenly matched with superstars from top to bottom. For DCW, Meg Lanning, Shafali Verma, and Marizanne Kapp will be crucial, while Jess Jonassen and Shikha Pandey will be some players to watch with the ball. For MIW, Nat Sciver and Harmanpreet lead the batters' chart with the former being a pretty handy bowler too. They have all-rounders like Amelia Kerr and Hayley Matthews who have proven to be match-winners.

  • 6:48 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    MI men's side extend wishes

    MI men players Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Tim David among others have extended wishes to the team to go well in the final.

  • 6:16 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Pitch report

    The pitch at the Brabourne Stadium generally suits the batters but since the last few games, it has seen a few low-scoring matches. The average first innings score is 165 while the average second innings total is 150 at the venue.

  • 6:07 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    Kaur is aware of Lanning-Shafali threat

    Kaur acknowledged Lanning and Shafali are a serious pair in the competition.

    I think in this tournament, they (Lanning and Shafali) are the best opening combination. Against us also in the last game, they did really well. Even against other teams, they are giving good starts. We know what they can do and how dangerous they are. We have some plans, and hopefully, we will execute them in the final.

  • 6:06 PM (IST) Posted by Varun Malik

    What they said

    Both the captains are aware of threats posed by the other team. 

    Lanning on Harmanpreet:

    Coming up against Harman is always a good challenge. She has shown that she is an excellent leader and gets results both individually and within the team. It is always a great contest against a team led by Harman.
