In the last league stage game, the Delhi Capitals faced off against the Gujarat Giants. The Capitals’ bowlers put up a disciplined performance, restricting the Giants to a modest total of 126 for nine. The Giants’ decision to bat first did not yield the desired results, with the team finding themselves in a difficult position at 12/2 in the fourth over.

The Capitals’ chase was led by their captain, Meg Lanning, who kickstarted the chase with a flurry of boundaries during the powerplay. Despite a couple of early setbacks, the team remained composed.
