Shafali Verma and Marrizane Kapp were the stars of last night. What a game they both played. Shafali's shots and Kapp's wickets put everyone in awe. Also, their bold game helped Delhi Capitals to register yet another win against the Gujrat giants.
The story as happened -
In the 9th match of the Women's premier league between Delhi capital (DC) vs Gujrat Giants (GG). At D.Y Patil stadium Navi Mumbai. Sneh Rana, Captain of Gujrat Giants (GG) won the toss and opted to bat first. Meg Lanning leading Delhi Capitals. After the nastiest loss against Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals roars back on 11th March with an entirely fearless attitude and defeated Gujrat Giants. Taking about the first inning, Gujrat Giants were entirely in a downfall. It was the match to forget for Gujrat.
Marrizane Kapp's outstanding haul of wickets -
Delhi capitals (DC) is one of the strongest teams with incredible athletes in both units either it's bowl or bat. They know how to roar back. One of them is Marrizane Kapp. What a player she is. She bowled just to take the wickets and she did. Kapp's outstanding haul of 5 wickets stunned everyone. While another bowler of Delhi Capitals (DC), Shikha Pandey took 3 wickets and Radha Yadav seized 1. These 3 master players help the Delhi capital stop Gujrat Giants from scoring more. The giants somehow managed to score 105/9.
Shafali the superstar -
Now talking about the 2nd inning. It was too easy for Delhi Capitals to chase the score and beat the Giants. They have a powerful top order and a dominant duo including Meg Lanning and Shafali Verma. Last Night was all about Shafali's stunning knock of 76 off 28 balls including 10 fours and five sixes. While Meg lanning was supporting her on the non-striker's end. She stayed not out at 21 off 15 balls. Meg enjoyed watching Shafali's shots. This dominant duo chased the score in only 7.1 overs. What an incredible inning it was. Completing the target and registering another win in this inaugural season of the women's premier league.
Gujrat Giants' dreadful game.
There's no doubt that Gujrat Giants have the best players. But last night all of them failed to bring the light for Gujrat. Their batting order ceased to function against the Bowlers of Delhi Capitals.Kim Garth scored 32 but she took almost 37 balls to manage that score. Harleen Deol scored 22 off 14 balls and Georgia Wareham 22 off 25 balls. The remaining players scored below 15. And they somehow managed to reach 105. Even their bowling went awry. And all the bowlers failed to take a single wicket in the last game.
Delhi Capital's fans bombed Twitter by tweeting about Superstar Shafali and Kapp's performances. Read below all those tweets.
