RCB’s Shreyanka chuffed by Bengaluru crowd in WPL 2024: Luckiest girls in world

Shreyanka Patil acknowledged the Bengaluru crowd for their immense support when the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) played their Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 matches at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

On Monday, March 4, RCB played their last match this season in Bengaluru against Alyssa Healy’s UP Warriorz. Smriti Mandhana and Co. did not let their fans down as they won the match by 23 runs.

After the match, Shreyanka and the rest of her RCB teammates took a victory lap, thanking the fans for their backing.

Shreyanka took to her Instagram and wrote, “Bangalore, you were simply amazing! We are the luckiest girls in the world! Your support through good and bad times is something we value a lot. I can’t wait to play at the Chinnaswamy again and hopefully do better next time.”

Shreyanka Patil suffering from ‘niggle’

Shreyanka did not take part in the match against the Warriorz after she suffered from a niggle. Veteran Indian left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht took her place and became the oldest player in WPL history at the age of 38.

Shreyanka is yet to be at her best in the series as she has picked up only 2 wickets from 4 matches at an economy rate of 11.11. She has not had much to do with the bat either.

However, the 21-year-old cricketer has shown her stupendous fielding skills. In the match against the Mumbai Indians (MI), Shreyanka made a brilliant stop at the long-on boundary.

She showed great presence of mind under pressure and saved 5 crucial runs for her team, although RCB failed to win the match.

After beating the Warriorz, RCB also snapped their 2-match losing streak. It now remains to be seen if Shreyanka can get fit before her team’s next match against the Gujarat Giants on Wednesday, March 6 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi.
