Mumbai, 17 March 2023: The Delhi Capitals fought their hearts out, but went down by 11 runs against Gujarat Giants in the TATA Women’s Premier League 2023 at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on Thursday. The Gujarat Giants put up a score of 147/4 in their 20 overs, before getting the Delhi Capitals all out for 136 runs in 18.4 overs.

The Delhi Capitals all-rounder Arundhati Reddy, who scored 25 runs off 17 balls and returned with figures of 1/25 with the ball, said, “It’s disappointing for us. We took the game deep, but we couldn’t cross the line. We put up a good fight as a team and that’s the positive we’ll take from this game.”

Reddy added, “We thought we had a chance even when number 9 and number 10 batters came to the crease. I had a good partnership with Shikha Pandey. If I had hung in there for a little more time, we could’ve won the game.”

The all-rounder also said that this game allowed the middle and lower order to test their skills, “The top order has been performing consistently so it’s good that the middle and lower order got a chance to test themselves in this game.”

Reddy expressed that the team will look to put up a good performance in its next game, “It’s important to stay calm and look to put up a good performance in our next game. We’ll forget about this game and start afresh in our next match.”

The Delhi Capitals will be up against Mumbai Indians in their next game at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai on Monday, 20 March 2023.
