Cricket News: RCB fans in delirium after the team won the WPL 2024 Final thanks to a strong bowling display against Delhi Capitals

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are enjoying glory for the first time, with the women’s team winning the 2024 Women’s Premier League thanks to a magnificent bowling display in front of a huge crowd at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

After a strong start by the Capitals thanks mainly to Shafali Verma’s blistering innings, player of the match Sophie Molineux turned the game on its head with three wickets in the eighth over. From there, the RCB spinners kept a stronghold on the Delhi lineup, who simply couldn’t get going as they stuttered to 113 all out.

With the ball, the Capitals tried their best to keep RCB in check. They succeeded in limiting the run rate, but the lack of wickets ultimately proved costly. Openers Sophie Devine and Smriti Mandhana hit 30+ scores, before Ellyse Perry overcame a slow start to finish with 35*. In the end, it was star Richa Ghosh who hit the winning runs to cap off a superb tournament individually.

Celebrations ran long into the night in Bangalore after Smriti Mandhana’s team produced a superb performance when it mattered most. Remember, last season RCB lost their first five games to miss the playoffs, but they made amends in the best way possible.

“Looking around the TL i have observed one thing. RCB Fans aren’t just celebrating the RCB women’s side. They are celebrating RCB’s win,” one fan wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “The loyalty is beyond gender lines. I don’t know if this has happened in other sports or clubs ever. A unique barrier has been crossed.”
