WPL Final: History beckons as plucky RCB out to ruin DC’s house party in the battle for maiden title

With just five teams in the competition and looking at all of their strengths and weaknesses pre-tournament, you’d think that the top two or top three would be a forgone conclusion but ask Mumbai Indians, who made a meal of a 136-run chase to lose their chance to defend the Women’s Premier League (WPL) crown. Who would have thought that the strongest team on paper out of all five squads wouldn’t be in the final but as the cliche goes, the matches are not played on paper and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had just enough to sneak into the final. The performance in the eliminator summed up RCB’s campaign in the 2024 edition of the WPL and now the women stand on the cusp of history, something that the men’s franchise hasn’t been able to do in 16 seasons thus far.
