Delhi Capitals beat Gujarat Giants in Match 9 of the TATA WPL at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Saturday.

DC got back to winning ways after the loss to Mumbai with a comprehensive win over GG.

Marizanne Kapp lit up the DY Patil Stadium with some sensational swing bowling to pick up a five-wicket haul while Shikha Pandey scalped three wickets to restrict GG to 105/9 from 20 overs. And then it was the Shafali Verma show with the bat as she smashed an unbeaten 76 off 28 balls to finish the chase off in 7.1 overs.

Chasing a 106-run target, just like her teammate Kapp, Shafali Verma got off to a blistering start as she hammered a 19-ball fifty, the second-fastest of the tournament so far. Staggeringly, 48 out of those 50 runs came in boundaries (8 fours and 2 sixes). She then smacked consecutive sixes down the ground off Tanuja Kanwar in the last over of the Powerplay.

Meg Lanning had the best seat in the house as she watched Shafali go berserk from the other end as the pair scored 87 in the Powerplay, the most in the first six overs so far in the tournament.

Shafali continued her assault as she hit a six and a couple of fours off lofted shots over covers off Mansi Joshi to get DC closer to the win.

Captain Lanning then finished it off in style with a four off Wareham to help DC beat GG by 10 wickets and 77 balls to spare. It was a fantastic performance in reply to their disappointing loss against Mumbai Indians in the last match.

Earlier, Gujarat Giants captain Sneh Rana won the toss and elected to bat. They made two changes to the line-up as Laura Wolvaardt and Georgia Wareham replaced Sophia Dunkley and Annabel Sutherland. DC made one change as Laura Harris replaced Alice Capsey.

All-rounder Marizanne Kapp was on fire straightaway as she ran through the GG top and middle order with some top-notch swing bowling. She cleaned up S Meghana off just the second ball of the innings with a cracking yorker and gave away just one run in the over. She hit the timber once again in her second over as she cleaned up Laura Wolvaardt with another superb inswinger. She made it two in two as she trapped Asleigh Gardner LBW off the very next ball with that lethal inswinger once again. Gardner reviewed it but replays showed the ball clipping the bails and it was an umpire's call.

There were a couple of fours in between before Shikha Pandey had Hemlatha (5) caught behind via a successful review. The batter went after a wide one and nicked it but the umpire didn't raise his finger. Lanning straightaway took the review and Ultraedge showed a spike.

Harleen Deol, who was looking good out in the middle with a 14-ball 20, couldn't carry on as she became Kapp's fourth victim and was trapped LBW via an off-cutter. This time again, Lanning's review was successful as the replays showed all three reds with the ball hitting middle and leg. GG were struggling at 31/5 at the end of the Powerplay. However, Kapp was in no mood to relent as she got her five-wicket haul inside first seven overs as she disturbed the stumps again, sending back Sushma Verma for 2.

Kim Garth held fort at one end and led GG's fight as she stitched a couple of small partnerships, first with Wareham (33 off 33 balls) and then with Tanuja Kanwar (28 off 37 balls). Garth's 32 unbeaten runs off 37 balls helped GG cross 100 as they finished on 105/9. Kapp was the star of the show with figures of 5/15 while Shikha Pandey finished with 3/26.
