<p>After Jemimah made 58 runs in 36 balls with eight fours and a six, Shreyanka Patil withdrew her from the game, ending her time at the crease. After 17.5 overs, DC was 157/3, ending their 97-run partnership. Marie-Claude</p>

DC finished 19.1 overs at 176/4.</p>
<p>Shreyanka stopped Delhi’s fast-paced attack in the last over, dismissing Jess Jonassen in the same over and holding the home side to 181/5 in 20 overs.</p>
