"Congratulations queens...": Kareena Kapoor Khan gives a shout out to RCB for winning WPL 2024

New Delhi [India] : Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan congratulated the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Women's Team for lifting the WPL trophy by beating Delhi Capitals by 8 wickets.

Posting a picture of the RCB team from their victory celebrations, Kareena took to Instagram Story and wrote, "Congratulations queens (red heart emojis)."

On Sunday, RCB with a clinical performance clinched an 8-wicket victory over Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium to lift their maiden WPL title. After the game, star batter Virat Kohli joined the post-match celebrations through a video call and had a chat with skipper Mandhana as well as the rest of the team.

In the post-match press conference, Mandhana revealed that she couldn't hear a single thing Kohli said to her and she would meet and have a conversation with him in Bangalore.

"I didn't hear anything he was saying because it was too loud, he was like just thumbs up and I just did thumbs up, I will be meeting him. He looked happy there was a bright smile. I remember him coming last year and a little pep talk which really helped me personally as well as the whole team. He has been a part of this franchise and I think he has been there for the past 15 years so I could see that happiness on his face but because of the noise I couldn't hear him, maybe I will chat to him when we go to Bengaluru," Mandhana said in the post-match press conference.

RCB's spin attack weaved magic in the first innings to nullify DC's explosive start. Sophie Molineux spearheaded the attack but the 21-year-old off-spinner Shreyanka Patil turned out to be the game-changer for RCB. She picked up a four-wicket haul and removed the tail within a blink of an eye to restrict DC to a sub-par total of 113.

"Shreyanka has been brilliant the first three or four matches didn't go her way, I remember having a chat with her and she was really low about a few things and I remember telling her on March 17th that we were going to do something special and little did I know it is going to happen and she will get the purple cap but really really happy for her. She has been a really hardworking person because she has really worked hard and I feel she is the most complete player to come in the last two years in the circuit of international cricket as well," Mandhana said while praising Shreyanka.
