Talking about the historic WPL final between Delhi and Mumbai, DC skipper Meg Lanning won the toss and opted to bat first at Brabourne Stadium. Table-toppers in the inaugural edition of the WPL, Delhi Capitals suffered a shocking batting collapse as the Shafali Verma-starrer side was reduced to 79-9 inside 16 overs.

Pacer Issy Wong triggered the batting collapse of the DC side by removing Shafali Verma (11), Alice Capsey (0) and Jemimah Rodrigues in the first powerplay. Joining forces with pacer Wong, MI spinner Hayley Matthews chipped in with crucial wickets of Jess Jonassen (2), Minnu Mani (1) and Taniya Bhatia (0) to turn the WPL 2023 final into a low-scoring contest at Brabourne Stadium.

Though Lanning’s DC were on verge of folding for a paltry total, middle-order batters Shikha Pandey and Radha Yadav guided Delhi Capitals to a respectable total in the WPL 2023 final. Yadav scored 27 off 12 balls while Pandey smashed 27 off 17 balls to help DC post 131-9 in the 20-over contest. Shikha and Radha stitched a match-altering 52-run partnership for the last wicket in the WPL final.
