After the women’s team’s final victory on Sunday, March 17, former England captain Michael Vaughan believes that Royal Challengers Bangalore could end up doing an IPL and Women’s Premier League (WPL) double.

A crucial player, Sophie Molineux put on an amazing display that severely hurt the Capitals batting lineup by claiming three crucial wickets in one over. 

Delhi Capitals were eventually all out for 113 runs in 18.3 overs as a result. Ellyse Perry, the tournament’s top run scorer, spearheaded the RCB chase with a solid innings, helped along by Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine. 

In 19.3 overs, RCB achieved their target, a noteworthy accomplishment for the team and its supporters as they celebrated their first-ever league title.
