“We have seen a lot of Richa in WPL and international cricket, Perry was going well, unfortunately, she got run out. The game could have gone anywhere in the last ball and good on Delhi as well to keep their nerve and win. One run does not make us a bad team. Good effort with the shorter boundary to restrict them to 180. We really believed that we could chase this down. Would tell the girls to keep their heads high and come back stronger the day after,” Mandhana said.
