After years and years and years of waiting the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) finally has a trophy. But Virat Kohli still doesn’t. What the fans of the Bangalore Team have been waiting for the past 16 years was made true thanks to the women’s team of the RCB, and it took them just two seasons to achieve this feat. The Challengers have been patiently waiting to grab the glory since the inception of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Even with giants like Virat Kohli, Glen Maxwell, Faf Du Plessis, and AB Devilier, the team failed to cross the finish line even after 16 seasons.

So when the Royal Challenger Bangalore women’s team finally raised the crown jewel, fans and followers erupted into ecstatic happiness. RCB’s historic victory had finally come, at the hands of the women’s team. 

RCB’s Historic Victory- How the Tournament unfolded

The women’s Indian Premier League (W-IPL) closed its second chapter yesterday with women clad in red, black, and golden jerseys raising their first trophy. The event saw big crowds filling the stadiums to support their team. The five-franchise event gained huge popularity since its inception in 2023. 

The trophy winners went into the final with eight points having won four out of eight games in the round-robin stage of the tournament. They were up against the Delhi Capitals (DC), the table toppers, the most unbeatable side throughout the session.

It wasn’t that the opposition had topped the table with six out of eight wins, they were laden with the best bowling attack, a dream batting line-up and were captained by the most successful cricketer there could be in women’s cricket. What did they lack then? Sheer Luck!

RCB’s Sophie Molineux’s single over with three wickets was enough to shake the bases of DC. They were on their way to a big total with Shefali Verma looking too comfortable on the pitch. But the team couldn’t hold the fort in front of RCB’s spin attack and the mighty DC collapsed on 113 runs. For Bangalore’s skipper Smriti Mandhana, the chase was like a walk in the park and with help from fellow batter Elise Perry, the Royals cruised to victory with just two dents in the batting line-up.

Celebrations All around

With RCB’s Historic victory came one of the biggest celebrations the country had seen in the realm of cricket. The city of Bangalore erupted with fans rejoicing, singing, and dancing. It was heartening to see a country where men’s cricket is valued much more than their counterparts, laud the success of the women’s team.
