Delhi Capitals defend successfully against Gujarat Giants

In what was only the third defeat for a chasing side in Bengaluru this season, Gujarat Giants went down to Delhi Capitals by 25 runs in the 10th match of the Women’s Premier League 2024. Capitals went to the top of the table with their second consecutive win, both having come batting first, whereas the wait for Giants to bring up their first victory of the season continued.

Match Summary:
Beth Mooney won the toss and chose to chase, but the match didn’t go as planned for the Giants. Delhi Capitals, led by Meg Lanning’s 55, posted 163/8. Giants struggled with dot balls in their innings and fell short, with Jess Jonassen and Radha Yadav taking six wickets between them.

Lanning Steers DC:
Lanning anchored the innings for DC, hitting 6 fours and a six. Her partnership with Alice Capsey (27 off 17) and later cameos from Annabel Sutherland and Shikha Pandey took DC past 150.

Fielding Lapses Hurt Giants:
Giants had a tough day in the field, starting with a dropped catch off the first over. Lanning was also dropped early in her innings, which proved costly as she went on to top-score.

Giants’ Chase:
Giants struggled early in their chase, losing wickets at regular intervals. Ashleigh Gardner’s 40 off 31 kept them in the game briefly, but once she was dismissed, Giants’ hopes faded. They have now lost all four games this season.

Delhi Capitals 163/8 (Lanning 55; Meghna 4-37) beat Gujarat Giants 138/8 (Gardner 40; Radha 3-20, Jonassen 3-22) by 25 runs.
