Given the new ball for the first time in the tournament, Sophie Devine struck twice in the first over, including taking the wicket of Healy. From the other end, Megan Schutt dismissed Tahila McGrath before leg-spinner Asha Shobana picked two wickets.

Mandhana continued her woeful form and was dismissed for a duck by Deepti after Harris had got rid of Devine. Perry, RCB’s best batter, too, failed today with the bat, out for 10, before Knight was dismissed, and after the 9th over, RCB, at 60/4, seemed to be heading toward another loss.

Then, came a big partnership in the careers of Richa Ghosh and Kanika Ahuja with the latter being very impressive and now making her mark. The duo got regular boundaries and also were smart with their running between the wickets, not leaving any opportunity of sneaking a single.

Their partnership of 60 (46) effectively sealed the match for RCB. Ahuja scored 46 off 30 while Richa remained till the end, 31* off 32, to see RCB over the line.

Emotions spread across the RCB dugout to the crowd at the DY Patil to the millions of fans on social media, who even made some funny memes on this occasion of RCB winning their first match of WPL 2023.
