Alyssa Healy, the UP Warriorz captain said: “Box ticked, leave it to us fo having an entertaining game. Our batting unit held their nerves and pulled it off for us but credit to the bowlers as well. It looks that way, in some of the chase we lost few early wickets, knowing the power we got in the middle we got the freedom up top but Grace, Tahlia and Ecclestone are doing amazing things with the bat for us. We will probably enjoy the night that we have qualified. That’s all what we needed and I am really proud of the group.”
Meg Lanning, the Delhi Capitals captain said: “It was a great game, hard to fault much. We got off well with the bowl, Kapp got us to a great start again and to chase down like that was brilliant. (On Kapp) She’s very talented, always eager to play well and to see her perform so well, very pleased for her. I think the bowler’s did it for us tonight, to restrict them to about 100 was great. (On Orange Cap) I was quite happy with the blue, not too worried about things like this. Just want a repeat performance like this, bat well, bowl well and hopefully get another win.”
