10.43 pm UP Warriorz have a few days off to contemplate their performance in a lackluster effort today and find a way to get their energy back for the playoff eliminator against Mumbai Indians. The winner of that will face Delhi Capitals in the final.

UP Warriorz captain Alyssa Healy: "We're giving an opportunity for some players to rest. We had a good crack tonight but we were not good enough in all three facets of the game and we need to fix some things before Friday. [On Ismail] She got a few wickets for us and gave us a sniff but we kept letting ourselves down. It wasn't easy batting conditions so we thought if we could get to 140 or 145, we were in with a shot. We just didn't bowl well at the front. Hopefully we reflect on what didn't go as well tonight and what we need to improve on. We'll probably have tomorrow off and have a good training on Thursday."

Delhi spinner Jess Jonassen: "It's really cool that it came down to the final day of the round games here and for us to finish on top of the table, it's a huge advantage to get a few days off going straight through to the final. Incredibly proud of the girls for the way we bounced back from setbacks. Even tonight we were pretty far off our best so to come away with the result and do it in that style was really pleasing. We've just got bundles of International experience, the likes of us coming over but equally our Indian talent as well. We've got some incredible talent with our group and even the girls who miss out have been incredible. One more big game to go.

Delhi captain Meg Lanning: "I don't think we were at our best tonight. We were a little bit sloppy, particularly in the field but it is nice to be able to get a win when you play like that. Our bowlers did a good job to keep them to 140-ish. It was a reasonable wicket. There was a bit of turn there for the spinners. It seemed like it came on a bit better with the new ball but spin seemed more effective as the innings wore on. We'll relax for a few days at least before getting ready for the final."

Alice Capsey is Player of the match for her three wickets plus 34 off 31 balls. "It was a different role that I've played today. It was all about just building a partnership."

That's all for today's live coverage. Enjoy the next few days off before the playoff eliminator gets underway. Until then, I'm Peter Della Penna. Take care!

Sharma to Jonassen, OUT

length ball on the wide guideline, goes to reverse sweep this and picks out backward point. Major confusion between the pair out in the middle as Kapp calls for a single immediately but Jonassen is off in the clouds. The relay on one bounce to Deepti is a bit wide of the stumps but Jonassen is so late taking off that Deepti still has plenty of time to get to the stumps to take the bails off.
