In response, MI-W started steadily but lost Hayley Matthews in the fourth over and Yastika Bhatia in the eighth over. This put MI-W in a difficult position as RCB-W bowlers had kept their run rate under control. Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt didn’t contribute many runs, but captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Amelia Kerr formed a partnership that added 52 runs to keep the game competitive.

Yet, Shreyanka Patil, Sophie Molineux, and Asha Sobhana showcased exceptional bowling skills in the last three overs, leading to a 5-run victory over the defending champions and securing RCB-W’s spot in their first WPL final. They will face DC-W in the showdown scheduled for Sunday. Interestingly, neither of these teams has won any trophies in the men’s edition, but the WPL 2024 final promises to break that streak for one of them.
