<p>Table-setters The Delhi Capitals came into the match hoping to secure a straight-up berth in the championship game. When their bowlers put on a disciplined display and held the Giants to 126/9, the hosts took a step closer to accomplishing their objective.</p>
<p>The Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore winner of the eliminator will face the Capitals in the championship game on Sunday.</p>
<p>With as many as 41 balls left in the chase, Shafali exploded into a flurry of boundaries, hitting as much as five sixes and seven fours. Shafali took only 28 balls to achieve her fifty. Meghna Singh was dismissed for 20 runs by the combination of Shafali and Jemimah Rodrigues (38 not out), while Ashleigh Gardner was dismissed for 28 runs in two overs.</p>
<p>“I’m glad we won tonight. Shafali was a great woman. She plays with such ease when she plays that way. It’s nice to see her dominate, Meg Lanning, the captain of DC, stated.</p>
<p>Player of the Match Shafali said that she “was looking to hit straight.” “I tried to appreciate the nice balls and try for singles when they were available. She said, “I wanted to bat through because I felt in good touch.”</p>
<p>The bowlers for the Delhi Capitals earlier made a commendable attempt to limit the Gujarat Giants to a respectable score. Had Bharati Fulmali’s 36-ball 42 and Kathryn Bryce’s undefeated 28 not occurred, the Giants would have ended up with a far smaller total.</p>
<p>Veteran South African Marizanne Kapp led the way with excellent figures of 2/17, bowling well during the powerplay. Minnu Mani and Shikha Pandey also took two wickets.</p>
<p>Brief scores: Delhi Capitals: 129/3 in 13.1 overs (Verma 71, Rodrigues 38*; Kanwar 2/20); Gujarat Giants: 126/9 in 20 overs (Fulmali 42, Bryce 28*; Minnu 2/9, Kapp 2/17, Pandey 2/23).</p>
