<p>There were three maximums and eight boundaries in her star-studded performance. Her 53 and captain Meg Lanning’s efforts helped DC to a competitive total of 192/4.</p>
<p>“We have similar batting positions, and I really look up to Kohli because he plays with such intent and runs well. Even when he hits a six, he hits in gaps, so if he hits well, it’s either 2 or 4 or 6 – that is what I try as well,” Jemimah Rodrigues told Espn Cricinfo.</p>
<p>Mumbai’s pursuit of a target of 193 was off to a disastrous start as Yastika Bhatia was dismissed for 6 by Marizanne Kapp in the first over of the session. Shikha Pandey sent Nat Sciver-Brunt packing for five runs in the next over.</p>
<p>Before the Mumbai Indians skipper was hit for six by Marizanne Kapp, Hayley Matthews and Harmanpreet Kaur showed off some incredible strokes that hammered Delhi spinners. Matthews hit two consecutive boundaries off Shikha Pandey in the fourth over.</p>
<p>Then, after Jess Jonassen scored 29 off 17 balls, she dismissed the Mumbai player, ending Matthews’ explosive innings.</p>
<p>After that, Amelia Kerr changed up her game and hit a six and a boundary before Titas Sadhu got the better of her in the ninth over. Amanjot Kaur, the new batsman, pounded boundaries at every loose delivery to keep the scoreboard ticking. The next over, S Sajana clobbered Arundhati Reddy for 20 runs. However, Mumbai was defeated by Delhi by 29 runs even after some quick hits and could not cross the finish line.</p>
<p>Delhi Capitals, who lead the points table at the moment, will take against UP Warriorz on March 8 at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.</p>
