Earlier, Delhi Capitals had a quick start by scoring 61 runs in the Power-play, and were looking all set to make a big total. But from 64/0 in seven overs, they lost all their wickets in just 49 runs.

Brief scores:

Delhi Capitals 113 all out in 18.3 overs (Shafali Verma 44, Meg Lanning 23; Shreyanka Patil 4-12, Sophie Molineux 3-20) lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore 115/2 in 19.3 overs (Ellyse Perry 35 not out, Shikha Pandey 1-11) by eight wickets.
