In the current Women's Premier League, Royal Challengers Bangalore's terrible season has continued as they were dealt yet another crushing defeat by UP Warriorz on Friday, March 10 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. They were the only team to still be winless after their fourth straight loss in the competition.
Smriti Mandhana, the captain of the RCB, won the toss and decided to bat first on the belter of a surface at the Brabourne Stadium, getting the game off to a good start for her team. Unfortunately, their batting failed them once more as they were dismissed for 138 in just 19.3 overs with Ellyse Perry top-scoring with a 39-ball 52 and Sophie Devine contributing 36.
In reply, the UP openers made a complete mockery of RCB’s total and chased down their target in just 13 overs with 10 wickets in hand. Captain Alyssa Healy and Devika Vaidya remained not out on 96 and 36 respectively. As a result, RCB maintained their last position in the points table with 0 wins in four matches with a net run rate of -2.648.
Brief scores: Royal Challengers Bangalore 138 in 19.3 overs (Ellyse Perry 52; Sophie Ecclestone 4-13, Deepti Sharma 3-26) lost to UP Warriorz 139/0 in 13 overs (Alyssa Healy 96*, Devika Vaidya 36*) by 10 wickets.
