Smriti however, said at the award ceremony after the dissapointing perfomance of RCB,

“Our bowlers bowled well. Due to which the match was dragged to 20 overs. We are improving. But there is a lot more to improve.”

One of the heroes of Delhi’s victory against RCB, the best cricketer of the match Jess Jonassen said,

“I didn’t realize that the match will be so tight. But I am happy with the team that I managed to win in the end.”

While speaking about her stellar performance against RCB in this WPL, she further added,

“In domestic cricket, I bat in the middle. That’s why it’s not a problem to play upwards here. Hopefully, I can play like this.”
