Facing a challenging target of 199, UP had a strong start with Alyssa Healey and Kiran Navgire combining for 47 runs in the first four overs. However, after Navgire’s departure, Healey lacked support from her teammates.

Under the pressure of the substantial chase, Healey was also dismissed after scoring 55 runs.

Towards the end, Deepti Sharma and Poonam Khemnar showed promise, but UP fell short by 23 runs as Royal Challengers Bangalore emerged victorious. Asha Sobhana, Sophie Devine, Sophie Molineux, and Georgia Wareham each secured two wickets for RCB.

Now going forward, Royal Challengers Bangalore Women will face Gujarat Giants Women on March 6th at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Meanwhile, UP Women are scheduled to play their next match against Mumbai Indians Women at the same venue on March 7th.
