Adding to the festivities, star India batter Virat Kohli joined in the revelry through a video call after the win at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. In the heartwarming video, Virat Kohli’s elation was palpable as he danced with joy, sharing the ecstatic moment with the victorious RCB squad.

Having been associated with the franchise since its inception in 2008, Kohli expressed his overwhelming happiness at the women’s team’s historic achievement, securing RCB’s maiden IPL title. Delhi Capitals, batting first, started strongly with Shafali Verma and Meg Lanning providing a solid foundation with a 64-run partnership.

However, after Verma’s dismissal, Delhi’s innings crumbled, with wickets falling rapidly. Sophie Molineux and Shreyanka Patil starred with the ball, bagging three and four wickets respectively, as Delhi managed to post a modest total of 113 runs.

 

Despite the modest target, Delhi Capitals kept the pressure on Royal Challengers Bangalore throughout the chase, making for a tense encounter. RCB faced some precarious moments during the chase, but Ellyse Perry and Smriti Mandhana’s composed batting ensured stability.

The defeat left DC skipper Meg Lanning visibly emotional, having led her team to the finals for the second consecutive year without clinching the title. Despite her stellar leadership, Lanning couldn’t propel Delhi Capitals over the finish line, leaving her distraught after the loss.
