DC posted 211 for 4, with captain Meg Lanning top-scoring with a 42-ball 70. Jess Jonassen and Jemimah Rodrigues also made useful contributions as they remained not out on 42 and 34 respectively.
Chasing a big total, UP Warriorz could only score 169 for 5 in 20 overs despite McGrath’s unbeaten innings. Jess Jonassen grabbed three wickets for 43 runs to be the most successful DC bowler.
UP Warriorz opted to field, thinking the surface would suit the pacers early on but Delhi were able to negate that threat to post a challenging total.
Lanning and her opening partner Shafali Verma (17 off 14) shared a 67-run off 39 balls with the skipper doing the bulk of the damage.
Warriorz made a surprising call to leave out Grace Harris, who single-handedly won them the previous game, for the extra pace of Shabnim Ismail.
