The UP Warriorz skipper Alyssa Healy won the toss and opted to field first. After being inserted to bat first, RCB posted a competitive total (157/6) on the board courtesy of twin half-centuries from Sabbhineni Meghana (53 off 44 balls) and Richa Ghosh (62 off 37 balls). Spinners dominated the innings and accounted for 5 out of their 6 wickets.

Chasing a target of 158, the UP Warriorz got off to a poor start, losing their skipper Alyssa Healy early on in the run chase. Tahlia McGrath and Vrinda Dinesh led the recovery with a crucial partnership for the 2nd wicket. However, they eventually failed to take their side over the line falling short of the target by 2 runs. Losing wickets in clusters derailed the run chase for the UP Warriorz.

Sobhana Asha triggered the collapse in the run chase. She landed a double blow in the 9th over of the run chase and her 2nd over of the innings. She came back and struck thrice and completed her five-fer in the 17th over of the run chase. She also became the first Indian bowler to pick up a five-wicket haul.
