<p>In the history of the Women’s Premier League, the Delhi Capitals became the first team to beat the Mumbai Indians when batting first. The 2023 runners-up defeated the MI team by 29 runs to maintain their lead in the points standings and knock the reigning champions down.</p>

Since the Men in Blue played their first Test in 1932, the Indian spin specialist will become the 14th Indian to appear in 100 or more Test matches. One of the greatest spinners of all time is Ashwin, according to many. His accomplishments bear witness to that. With more over 500 Test wickets, the 37-year-old Indian is the second-best in history. With ten Player of the Series victories, he leads all Indian winners. Ashwin is the only Indian player with 35 Test wickets. Nevertheless, Ashwin has remembered his greatest spells, which did not feature any of the 35 fifers he has taken in the format, as he prepares to play in his milestone game. Rather than that, he listed three spells for which he did not choose a five. Each of the three is from 2017 or 2018. The first occurred during Australia's Test match in Bengaluru in 2017. India was bowled out for 189 in the first innings of the second Test, having already lost the previous one. Though he picked up a six-for in the second innings, Ashwin considered his first innings performance of 49-13-84-2 to be among his finest. The other two were at Centurion in the following year and Edgbaston later in 2018. In the Edgbaston Test, he scored 3 for 59, and in Centurion, 4/133. "When you're done, Test victories are what truly stick out. But after much consideration, I think the stint I bowled in Birmingham in 2018 was among my best ever. On the third day, in the morning, I grabbed three wickets. Cook, Root, and Jennings were mine. In the match, I secured seven wickets. Though it didn't work out, I thought I had bowled India to victory in the match. When questioned about his greatest spells, he said, "That has to be one of the finest spells I have bowled." "I bowled a period on day two morning in a test in Bangalore, but it wasn't for much reward. And the first day of the 2018 match versus South Africa in Centurion. I received a four-for. Though it didn't happen, it may have been six or seven. That spell worked well. Those three periods will be particularly noticeable. Over the years, many five-fors and victories have occurred, but these are the spells that will stick in my memory because of how [the ball] left my hand and the personal significance they had for me," he said. Ashwin is getting ready for the fifth Test as India enters the match with a commanding 3-1 lead. Ashwin and India would be in heaven if they won 4-1 9″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-ravichandran-ashwin-is-about-to-wear-his-100th-test-cap-when-he-plays-in-the-fifth-750×422.jpg 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-ravichandran-ashwin-is-about-to-wear-his-100th-test-cap-when-he-plays-in-the-fifth-1024×576.jpg 1024w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-ravichandran-ashwin-is-about-to-wear-his-100th-test-cap-when-he-plays-in-the-fifth-768×432.jpg 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-ravichandran-ashwin-is-about-to-wear-his-100th-test-cap-when-he-plays-in-the-fifth-390×220.jpg 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/theindiaprint.com-ravichandran-ashwin-is-about-to-wear-his-100th-test-cap-when-he-plays-in-the-fifth.jpg 1200w” sizes=”(max-width: 1198px) 100vw, 1198px” /></p>
<p>The Capitals scored 192 runs in the first inning, driven by Meg Lanning and Jemimah Rodrigues’ outstanding batting performances. Lanning, the captain, smashed 53 from 38 balls for her second consecutive fifty and her third of the tournament. With 543 runs in the competition, Lanning became the first player to ever achieve 500 runs in the WPL.</p>
<p>Rodrigues seemed radiant. She was using her strokes to play with the Mumbai bowlers, scoring 69 runs off just 33 balls. She had an amazing knock, hitting eight fours and three sixes, leading the Capitals to 192/4.</p>
<p>Mumbai, in response, had a poor day today and lost for the first time ever in the tournament’s history while chasing. Despite the fact that Hayley Matthews scored 29 runs off of only 17 balls, players like Yastika Bhatia, Nat Sciver-Brunt, and Harmanpreet Kaur managed just 17 runs in 12 balls. MI lost these wickets and never looked again in the chase. After 5.5 overs, they were 54/4 and lost 68/5.</p>
<p>Despite Amanjot Kaur’s best efforts, tonight’s first game at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium was not to be. The MI team managed to score only 163 from their 20 overs, despite not being bowled out. The fact that Amanjot, the No. 7 hitter, scored the most, 42, says much about how awful MI was that day. Mumbai’s NRR fell short of RCB’s, which caused them to drop from second to third position in the points rankings.</p>
