In a crucial moment of the play, UP Warriorz lost two big wickets of Grace Harris and Shweta Sehrawat in quick succession as Deepti Sharma was left to fend for herself against the mighty Delhi Capitals Women.

UP Warriorz, desperate for a win to stay alive in the WPL 2024 season playoff race, met table toppers Delhi Capitals Women in a high-stake fixture earlier today. Having won the toss, Alyssa Healy of UP-W opted to bat first. 

However, Healy perhaps miscued by reading the conditions as the Capitals bowling unit were all over them. Titas Sadhu drew the first blood in Kiran Navgire, and after skipper Healy’s dismissal, runs stopped coming for UP.

However, with UP-W’s back against the wall, veteran Indian all-rounder Deepti Sharma showed a brave fight from one end. She put together a 50 runs crucial knock, but her peers from the other end let her down big time.

In the 14th over, when UP Warriorz decided to switch gears, in-form batter Grace Harris holed out to the fielder at point. Radha Yadav of DC-W read Harris’ movement down the track and deceived her by taking the pace off the ball. 

She smartly bowled wide to the off-stump, and Harris, in an attempt to go for a big shot, got a thick outside edge, which landed into the safe hands of Jess Jonassen at point.

In the very next over, Shweta Sehrawat’s inexperience was brutally exposed. A fuller delivery onto the stumps from Titas Sadhu proved to be too quick for Shweta. She got beaten on the outside edge, and the angling in delivery crashed into her leg stump.

With that, UP-W lost half the side in 15 overs, with Deepti Sharma stranded at the other end. She somehow batted deep but failed to make a significant difference on the scoreboard.

By the end of 20 overs, UP Warriorz had a mere 138 runs on board, which is undoubtedly not enough for the in-form Delhi Capitals’ batting unit.
