In a momentous victory, Royal Challengers Bangalore Women (RCB-W) secured their first-ever championship title, triumphing over the Delhi Capitals by a significant margin of eight wickets. The win sparked widespread celebrations among fans, who flooded social media platforms with jubilant messages and congratulations on the franchise's first-ever title across WPL or IPL.

The franchise has been the leading social media page in terms of fan engagement. Setting a new milestone in social media engagement, RCB's winning post on Instagram garnered a staggering one million likes in just nine minutes, marking the fastest achievement of this feat by an Indian account on the Meta-owned platform.

Joining the chorus of praise, IPL veteran and RCB's icon, Virat Kohli, took to Instagram to extend his congratulations to the Smriti Mandhana-led RCB Women. Kohli hailed the team as “Superwomen” in recognition of their remarkable accomplishment. With the spotlight now on the Men's team as they gear up for the upcoming IPL 2024 season, the pressure mounts for them to replicate the success of their female counterparts.

The IPL franchise, led by Faf du Plessis, are poised to kick off their campaign against reigning champions Chennai Super Kings on March 22nd at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. As former cricketer Ravi Shastri aptly noted, the onus is now on the men's team to follow in the footsteps of Mandhana's victorious team.

Hard for me to come out with expressions: Mandhana

Reflecting on their journey to the title, RCB Women's captain Smriti Mandhana expressed her pride in her team's performance, particularly highlighting their resilience in overcoming challenges during the league phase. Mandhana commended her teammates for their exemplary effort, noting the importance of peaking at the right moment in tournaments of this nature.

“Feeling hasn’t still sunk in. Hard for me to come out with expressions. One thing I’ll say is I’m proud of the bunch. Our Bangalore (Bengaluru) leg was really good. We came to Delhi and had two tough losses. That’s what we spoke about, that we need to step up at the right time. These tournaments are about peaking at the right time.” — Smriti Mandhana said after the match.
