Royal Challengers Bangalore beat UP Warriorz by 2 runs
Right then, another close affair and the 2nd edition of the competition has started off with a bang and the home team Bangalore have picked up a crucial win. Next up, the reigning champions Mumbai take on Gujarat at the very same venue on Sunday, 25 February beginning at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT). However, you can join us a lot sooner for the build-up. Cheers!
Asha Shobana is the Player of the Match for her stellar five-wicket haul that turned out to be a match-winning spell. Says that she has struggled a lot and put in a hard work and she isn't thinking about her five-wicket haul and is happy that they won on their home ground. Says that she knew she could be put in such a situation and she was ready for it. Mentions that she knew Grace Harris was going against the turn and hence tried to float the ball up and induce a top edge.
Smriti Mandhana, the captain of Bangalore says that she is happy with the game, mentions that she was aware of what happened in the first match. She then praises the bowlers for an amazing show out in the field. Mentions that she had faith in Sophie Molineux and to see the way Asha Shobana bowled was incredible. States that Asha is someone who challenges herself and believes in herself as well. Informs that the deck was a little bit on the slower side and is delighted with the way Richa Ghosh and Sabbhineni Meghana stitched a solid stand.
The Presentation ceremony...
Sophie Molineux is now down for a chat. Sophie says that to see the fans and play in front of such a crowd was special. Adds that the girls fought hard till the end and it feels good to get the win. Adds that she hasn't seen the ball on replay where she got out Alyssa Healy but it did feel good to get her wicket. Mentions that it was a roller-coaster of a second innings and reckons that they were able to get 20 runs extra with the bat in their innings. On Asha Shobana, she says that she bowled really well and is super pumped for her.
Alyssa Healy, the skipper of UP is down for a chat. She feels that they got themselves back in the contest but kept losing their way. Credits Sophie Molineux for the way she bowled and the opposition as well for a great win. Mentions that they will learn a lot from this defeat which is a part of the game. Adds that there are plenty of positives they take from this game. They had their backs to the wall for most part of the games. Hopes that they bounce back quickly from this loss. Informs that she has seen all the hard work that the girls have been doing in training and is super proud of the energy they brought on the field. States that the young girls will only grow as the tournament progresses.
Earlier in the game, UP won the toss and Alyssa Healy put Bangalore into bat first. This decision was well-backed by the bowlers as they were able to get both impactful openers, Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine out quite early. Ellyse Perry too couldn't make a mark but Sabbhineni Meghana did and along with Richa Ghosh got Bangalore back into the game. Both batters got fine half-centuries but couldn't stay on till the end. Rajeshwari Gayakwad was the pick of the bowlers for UP as she picked up a couple of wickets and the rest of the bowler also chipped in.
UP will feel they have let one slip and after a brilliant effort in the field and a stellar effort with the bat for most of the game, they failed to get over the line. They lost their talismanic skipper Alyssa Healy early after which Tahlia McGrath took control and stitched together a stand with Vrinda Dinesh who couldn't quite get going. Both of them fell in quick succession, leaving UP in a bit of a fix but then came that brilliant stand between Grace Harris and Shweta Sehrawat where both batters stayed positive and got the boundaries away and it all looked easy for them. However, a brain fade from the two batters and a couple of others that followed, saw UP get behind in the game and eventually, Deepti Sharma had just a bit too much to do in the final over.
The smile and relief on the face of skipper Smriti Mandhana says it all and look what it means to the Bangalore players to get over the line while being under the pump for a long while and they couldn't have asked for more. They didn't have a big score on board but did manage to send Alyssa Healy packing in the second over. After that though, they failed to really get wickets in the middle phase and allowed a big partnership to brew. The likes of Ellyse Perry and Shreyanka Patil weren't quite at their best but thankfully for the hosts, Asha Shobana was and she turned the game upside-down in her final over picking up three wickets and ending with a five-wicket haul. The likes of Georgia Wareham and Sophie Molineux held their nerves brilliantly as well in the final two overs to take their side over the line.
Bangalore have stolen it at the death and the crowd inside the Chinaswamy is up on its feet, cheering their home team and the atmosphere is absolutely electric. With 32 needed off 24 balls and a bunch of wickets in hand, UP were strolling to the finish line but some stellar spin bowling from Bangalore and just poor decision-making from the UP batters has cost them a sure-shot win.

Asha Shobana is turning the game on its head here. Two wickets in two deliveries. What a breakthrough but hang on, Kiran Navgire though has a chat with her partner and takes the review. It is a tossed-up delivery, on the leg stump line. Kiran Navgire brings out the reverse hit but misses. The ball sneaks under the blade and pings on her legs. The UltraEdge confirms no bat is involved. The Ball Tracking shows that the ball is missing the wickets and the crowd has gotten silent out of nowhere.
Kiran Navgire is the next batter in.

Asha Shobana To Shweta Sehrawat OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! What a catch from the skipper. Smriti Mandhana with a stunner and Asha Shobana picks up her thrid. Just what happened in the first innings, the batting team loses a wicket right after the strategic break. It is tossed up, outside off. Shweta Sehrawat drives it uppishly towards extra covers. Smriti Mandhana there dives forward, and collects the catch. She thinks that she has pouched safely but the umpires do not and they take it upstairs to confirm. The third umpire has a closer look and concludes that Smriti Mandhana had her fingers wrapped under the ball and the wicket does stand after all.
Strategic break! UP are in command here and this partnership between Grace Harris and Shweta Sehrawat is proving to be decisive. With 32 needed off 24 balls and wickets in hand, Bangalore need a miracle and they need wickets in a heap to come back into the game.

OUT! STUMPING! Asha Shobana picks up her first wicket and gets rid of Vrinda Dinesh who was looking impressive at the start, but then was bogged down. It is tossed up, full and outside off. Vrinda Dinesh dances down the track and throws the kitchen sink at it. Although, she gets undone by the away turn here. Richa Ghosh gathers it well and takes the bails off quicky to break this stand.

Georgia Wareham To Vrinda Dinesh
Georgia Wareham tosses it up, around off. It turns away a bit. Vrinda Dinesh hangs back and flicks it into square leg but for none.
Strategic break! Pretty even-stevens start to the chase but Bangalore will be slightly more happy to have not conceded many runs in the Powerplay. Alyssa Healy got out early to a gem of a delivery but since then, Tahlia McGrath has led the fightback. Vrinda Dinesh has played quite a few deliveries but still doesn't look settled and she really needs to step up as there are some big hitters sitting in the dug out for UP. Let's see how the middle phase pans out.

Renuka Singh To Vrinda Dinesh
The keeper comes up to the stumps and Renuka Singh bowls it full and on the stumps, Vrinda Dinesh looks to flick it away but misses and gets hit on the pads again. And again there's an appeal and the umpire turns it down. The review is taken yet again by Smriti Mandhana and this one looks close. UltraEdge shows a flat line as the ball passes the bat. Ball Tracking shows that the impact is fine but the ball is angling a fair bit down leg. Review lost for Bangalore this time.

Renuka Singh To Vrinda Dinesh
A huge appeal for LBW but the umpire doesn't seem interested. That one swung back in a long way and Smriti Mandhana does opt for the review, interesting. Renuka Singh goes a bit wider on the crease and angles the ball in on a fuller length from outside off. Vrinda Dinesh gets across the stumps to whip it leg side but plays all around it and gets a thud on the pads. Nothing on UltraEdge. Ball Tracking shows that the impact is umpire's call and the wickets are hitting and Vrinda survives as the impact is umpire's call.

Sophie Molineux To Alyssa Healy OUT!
OUT! BOWLED'EM! Sophie Molineux with a ripper of a delivery and Alyssa Healy is left bamboozled. Molineux just flights it up a bit and bowls it on a length on off and middle. The ball grips and turns away sharply, Healy looks to wait back and play it late but the ball beats the outside edge and hits the top of off stump. Molineux is pumped up and why not as she gets the prized wicket of Healy.
