Match Ended   
173/6 (20.0/20)
171/5 (20.0/20)
Mumbai Indians beat Delhi Capitals by 4 wickets
Right then, the second edition of the Women's T20 League is up and running with a memorable clash between the top two sides from the first tournament and this is just the start of much more exciting and bigger things to come. Up next, Bangalore will take on UP at the very same venue on Saturday, 24 February. That game will begin at 7.30 IST (2 pm GMT) but you can catch our build-up to the game a lot sooner. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Harmanpreet Kaur, the victorious captain of Mumbai is also the Player of the Match for her brilliant knock. She says that she is happy with the way they played. Gives credit to her batting coach, who made her practice very hard. Informs that she wanted to take a little break and recover mentally as well. Mentions that they only planned to take the game deep and Sajeevan Sajana showed what she really is capable of. Informs that they only wanted to look at the bowling option when trying to take the attack to the bowlers. States that if not for Sajana she wouldn't be standing here.
The Presentation ceremony...
Amelia Kerr now joins in for a quick chat. Kerr says that it feels really good to get over the line and things can go either way in such situations. Adds that the wicket was good for batting and the outfield was fast as well. Mentions that they knew they could go at 10 runs and over if they had wickets in hand and ends by saying that with wickets getting slower over the course of the tournament, their spinners will come more and more into play.
Meg Lanning, the captain of Delhi is in for a chat. On the total, she thinks that it was a decent one on this wicket. Adds that Mumbai began well, although we did manage to recover. Informs that the pitch was good for batters. She then praises Mumbai for getting over the line. She feels that they could have done the job, but unfortunately, it did not happen. Thinks that they executed their plans for the most part of the game.
Earlier in the game, Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss and put Delhi into bat first and her decision was right away backed by Mumbai's new recruit and veteran pacer Shabnim Ismail who sent Shafali Verma packing early. After that, Meg Lanning and Alice Capsey put on a steady stand before shifting gears and the latter went on to play a magnificent innings. Jemimah Rodrigues came out with intent and got a quickfire 40-odd before Marizanne Kapp added the finishing touches to take Delhi over the 170-run mark. With the ball, Shabnim Ismail and Saika Ishaque were economical upfront but the rest of the bowlers took some pounding. Natalie Sciver-Brunt and Amelia Kerr picked up a couple of wickets each as well. Coming to the chase, it was neck-and-neck from start to finish but the reigning champions eventually came out on top.
Delhi will feel they should have won the game but moments like that final delivery happen and there's not much one can do about it. Marizanne Kapp gave them the perfect start but the likes of Shikha Pandey and Annabel Sutherland couldn't build on it and it was then Arundhati Reddy who got rid of Natalie Sciver-Brunt. The spinners couldn't build on much pressure in the middle phase and once again it was Reddy who broke a budding stand and brought her side back into the game. Pandey got one wicket too and Alice Capsey who bowled the last over got rid of the opposition skipper but couldn't take her side over the line as she conceded the six off the very last delivery.
Needing 172 for victory, it wasn't going to be straightforward for Mumbai and things got a bit difficult as they lost the talismanic Hayley Matthews in the very first over for a duck. But Mumbai are a team full of superstars and the likes of Yastika Bhatia and Natalie Sciver-Brunt fought back well but it was the former who played a superb innings. Yastika and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur put on a stand of 56 runs before Yastika was dismissed and then Amelia Kerr came in and played a handy knock as well. However, it was the skipper who took the game deep and almost won it as well but fell at the last hurdle and all seemed lost for Mumbai. Up stepped Sajeevan Sajana who came in and smoked a maximum off the final ball to seal the win and memorable game for her side.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? Two outrageously skillful teams, battle it out in the opening fixture of a new season and what do we get out of it? Everything! The drama, the emotions and maybe the birth of a new hero in the form of Sajeevan Sajana. An absolute humdinger to kick off the 2nd season of the Women's T20 League but it is the reigning champions Mumbai who get over the line on the final delivery and leave Delhi's hearts shattered once again.

Alice Capsey To Sajeevan Sajana
SIX! OH MY WORD! Sajeevan Sajana, what an announcement. Now, no one, I mean no one is going to forget your name. Alice Capsey got the big fish on the previous delivery, but does it even matter? She did not know what was waiting for her. Sajeevan Sajana steps down the track, gets underneath the bounce and heaves it down the park, towards the long on region. For a second, we all thought the fielder could come into play, but it was only to recover the ball. MUMBAI WIN BY 4 WICKETS!
The debutant, Sajeevan Sajana walks out to bat on the final delivery.

Annabel Sutherland To Amelia Kerr
Another single to end and now Mumbai need 52 runs off 30 balls. Nice and full outside off, almost in the blockhole, Amelia Kerr stays back in the crease and drives it away to cover where Meg Lanning makes a sharp stop and keeps it down to one.

1
Annabel Sutherland To Harmanpreet Kaur
A low full toss outside off, dipping on the batter, Harmanpreet Kaur gets low and drives it on the full to extra cover for a single.
OUCH! The physio is out there in the middle now as Harmanpreet Kaur seems to be in some pain. She is holding her hamstring here. Wisely, the umpire's decide to call for a strategic break. Mumbai are placed comfortably in this run chase. They need 54 runs in 32 deliveries. This partnership though is very crucial for them. Delhi are trying to apply the squeeze but the boundaries are coming quite easily.
14.4
lb
Annabel Sutherland To Amelia Kerr
Leg bye! Half a shout for LBW but Harmanpreet Kaur could have and should have been out there. Shortish length over off and angling in, Amelia Kerr looks to shuffle across and scoop it away but gets it off the thigh pad to the left of the keeper before setting off for the run. Kaur is struggling to reach the batter's end and the keeper, Taniya Bhatia misses the direct hit from a few yards out as Kaur dives in and might have hurt herself too.

Annabel Sutherland To Harmanpreet Kaur
FOUR! Absolutely bludgeoned and Harmanpreet Kaur showing her raw strength here. Full and outside off, right in the slot, Kaur hangs deep and powers it away past Meg Lanning at extra cover for a boundary. That really rocketed to the fence.

Arundhati Reddy To Yastika Bhatia
No need of that from Yastika Bhatia when she has been playing normal cricket shots so well. Full and wide angling across the batter, Yastika walks right across the off stump and looks to paddle it away but is well beaten. They think about reviewing for a wide but decide against it.
13.1

Arundhati Reddy To Yastika Bhatia
No ball! Oh, dear! The ball has spilled out of Arundhati Reddy's hand and has landed beyond the cut strip for a no ball. Looks to go full and wide but spills it way beyond the tramline outside off and even lands beyond the playing surface. Free Hit coming up.
Change. Arundhati Reddy (2-0-12-1) comes back into the attack. Meg Lanning hungry for wickets now.

Strategic break! This has been an exciting chase thus far with Delhi getting the MVP of last season's tournament for a duck and after that there was a counter-punch from Yastika Bhatia and Natalie Sciver-Brunt. The former is still on the crease and has the skipper to accompany her. Delhi know a couple of quick wickets will see them firmly in control of the game but for now, things remain in balance.

Marizanne Kapp To Natalie Sciver-Brunt
Sharp work and a wicket-maiden to begin with from Marizanne Kapp, terrific stuff! Good length on the stumps, Natalie Sciver-Brunt comes down the track and punches it to the right of the bowler who picks it up and in one swift motion throws it back at the batter's end. Had that hit, Natalie Sciver-Brunt might have been in trouble as well.

Marizanne Kapp To Natalie Sciver-Brunt
A huge shout for LBW but this is turned down. Given it is Natalie Sciver-Brunt, Meg Lanning has gambled with the review. Spot on from Marizanne Kapp though as this is bowled on a fuller length and on middle and leg stump and this time the ball nips back in. Natalie Sciver-Brunt looks to tuck it leg side but misses and gets hit on the pads. Nothing on UltraEdge and Ball Tracking confirms that the ball was going down leg. A review lost for Delhi.
Natalie Sciver-Brunt now comes in at number 3.

Marizanne Kapp To Hayley Matthews OUT!
OUT! EDGED AND GONE! Marizanne Kapp does what she does best and picks up a wicket in the first over. Steams in and serves it full outside the off stump and gets it to shape away nicely. Hayley Matthews is drawn forward and ends up driving away from the body and that is a loose shot as the outside edge is found. Taniya Bhatia takes a good catch low to her right and Kapp gets the big fish for a duck.

Marizanne Kapp To Hayley Matthews
