Mumbai: If the batsmen are scoring blistering runs in the Women’s Premier League (WPL 2023), then some bowlers have also spread panic. Star fast bowler Marijan Cap of Delhi Capitals also destroyed the batting of Gujarat Giants by bowling some similar panic. Kapp did such a situation that it became difficult for the batsmen to even touch the ball. The South African pacer single-handedly created panic by returning half of the Gujarat team to the pavilion.
Coming out to bowl first at the DY Patil Stadium, Delhi Capitals, captained by Meg Lanning, did the same to Gujarat as Mumbai Indians had done to Delhi in the last match. The way Delhi scored only 105 runs against Mumbai, Delhi took revenge from Gujarat and restricted it to 105 runs for 9 wickets in 20 overs.

Half the team settled in 4 overs
However, Gujarat’s condition was even worse and it was difficult for him to even reach 100 runs. The reason for this was the dashing all-rounder Marijan Cap, who started sending back the Gujarat batsmen from the very first over of the innings. By the seventh over, Gujarat had lost 6 wickets for just 33 runs and out of this, Marijan alone took 5 wickets.
The charm of this star pacer was that whichever batsman got out, she could not even touch the ball. He bowled 3, while two were out LBW. In his 4 overs, Cap gave only 15 runs and uprooted 5 wickets. She also became the third bowler to take five wickets in WPL.

somehow cross 100
Apart from Cap, experienced Indian pacer Shikha Pandey also did not lag behind and took 3 wickets in her name, while Radha Yadav got 1 wicket. If Gujarat somehow crossed the 100 mark, then Kim Garth (32) and Georgia Wareham (22) were responsible for it. Incidentally, Garth himself has taken 5 wickets in an innings in the tournament.
