I wanted to win one game for RCB. One dream accomplished today. Since childhood, I’ve been a big hitter, I always play this way. The cricket journey was a bit tough because there aren’t the best academies in Pathiala, but now things are getting better. I have played in such situations while playing for Punjab, I like playing under pressure. The team is very happy now because we have got our first win.

Post Match Presentation
RCB Team Captain Smriti Mandhana
Yeah, it was tense. We lost a couple of wickets in the 7th over; it was a bit nervous. But the way Kanika and Richa played was brilliant. Kanika in particular, really proud of her. Really excited to see her bat, the approach she has. She is a 360-degree player, who isn’t the most common in Indian cricket. Really impressed with her and the belief she has. Even when we have not been in great positions, the crowd keep chanting for us. Really happy for this loyal support base, not a lot of teams will have supporters turn up in such high numbers after losing five games.
UP Warriorz Team Captain Alyssa Healy
We weren’t up to standard tonight and the total was under par, not good enough. The wicket was holding a bit, it was like wet clay, and we got ahead of ourselves, losing three wickets in the powerplay is not great. It was spin to win, the ball was gripping, and we needed wickets, we thought it would be spinners to get us those wickets. (On RCB getting their first win) Full credit to them, they are a good side and things haven’t gone their way. They turned up tonight after losing five games and were the better team.
