After the doubleheader on Saturday, there was a change in the WPL 2023 points standings. On that particular day, there were two matches: MI vs. UPW and GG vs. RCB. Mumbai Indians, who had already solidified their position in the top 3, suffered their first tournament loss, while RCB won their game to make it two wins in a row.

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Chase

Saturday was one of the few days in the first Women’s Premier League history when the league standings also saw movement, even though the points table changes after every match. Mumbai, who became an unbeatable force in the league, received the threat from UP Warriorz during their winning streak. Mumbai could only score 127 runs while batting first.

In response, UP was rattled and reeling at 27 for 3. Tahlia McGrath and Grace Harris scored most of the runs needed for Warriorz. However, Deepti Sharma and Sophie Ecclestone’s cameo strikes helped UP surpass MI’s total.

The second match had a relatively high score compared to the first one, which had a low score. In the game, Gujarat Giants, who batted first, set RCB a target of 189 thanks to Laura Wolvaardt’s 67. In retaliation, RCB got off to an ideal start thanks to the opening stand of 125 runs between captain Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine.

Sophie Devine’s Performance

Devine, the more aggressive partner, was on pace to record a century but fell one run shy of the illustrious total. During her 36-ball 99-run innings, Devine smashed 9 fours and 8 sixes. After just 15.3 overs, RCB quickly outscored GG by 8 wickets.
