In the ninth game of the Women’s T20 League, Meg Lanning-led Delhi defeated Gujarat by 10 wickets on Saturday. After losing against Mumbai, Delhi bounced back to come back on the winning track. After winning the toss, Gujarat opted to bat first but the decision didn’t go well.

Gujarat was restricted to 105 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs. Kim Garth was the top scorer for the team as she scored 32 runs off 37 balls. Harleen Deol and Georgia Warhem also tried to put in some runs but failed to capitalize on quick starts. For Delhi, wicketkeeper-batter Shafali Verma and South Africa superstar Marizanne Kapp shone brightly with bat and ball respectively.

In the first innings, Kapp clinched five wickets to restrict Gujarat to a below-par total. She finished with extraordinary numbers of 4-0-15-5. Meanwhile, she got great support from Indian right-arm medium pacer Shikha Pandey as she claimed 3 wickets and stopped the flow of runs along with Kapp.
