Royal challengers Bangalore again in the distress. The more trouble they faced was when one of the top-order batters Heather Knight got run out due to miscommunication between Perry and Knight.
The story as happened -
The 8th Match of the Women's Premier League between Royal Challengers Banglore vs UP warriorz on 10th March at Brabourne stadium Mumbai. UP Warriorz beats Challengers by 10 wickets. It was the night to forget for Banglore.
Royal Challengers Banglore won the toss and opted for bat first. The start was quite good for them but after some time wickets began to fall off. After Mandhana's and Sophie Devine's return to the pavilion. All the hopes of Banglore were on Ellesy Perry and Heather Knight. They both are top-class players. Perry was beautifully hitting but meanwhile, miscommunication took place between them.
The trouble for Royal Challengers Bangalore -
Rajeshwari Gayakwad was bowling the 13th over of the inning. Perry was on the strike. She hits the ball on the cover side. And thought to go for a quick single. But the ball was not too far. The fielder grabbed the bowl and threw it towards the wicketkeeper. Meanwhile, miscommunication happened and Heather Knight was snapped way short to the crease and got run out. Even the third umpire declared the same. Perry knew the importance of Heather's wicket in the match. And after that stint, the hope for Challengers started vanishing. Perry scored 52 runs. And help Challengers to reach the score of 138 runs.
UP warriorz best performance -
Talking about the UP warriorz, they were best in their bowling as well as batting.
The bold Challengers at 138 in 19.3 overs.
Sophie Ecclestone registered the haul of 4 wickets and Deepti Sharma took the 3 wickets. Which played the important role in triumphing over Challengers. Talking about their batting then the skipper Allysa Healy was the star of the night by scoring 96 runs off 47 balls and took her team to register their win. One of the best matches for UP Warriorz.

#RCB never learns from mistakes. It was very evident from last 3 games, your top 4 needs to face more balls. Today again they sent kanikaahuja instead of heatherknight. Who is the coach? It’s common sense! #SmritiMandhana #RCBWvsUPW #WPL23— bhuvy.eth (@BhuvyEth) March 10, 2023
