Marijan Kapp bowled economically giving only 18 runs in four overs but did not get any wicket. Delhi captain Meg Lanning won the toss and decided to bowl. Bangalore captain Smriti Mandhana (8) could not score big once again. The Bangalore team could only manage 29 runs for one wicket in the powerplay.
