Speaking about the #SHEBELIEVESWEBELIEVE campaign, the UP Warriorz Captain Alyssa Healy expressed, “We want to reiterate that we believe in every woman’s right to chase her dreams, in sport and life. Cricket is the perfect platform to celebrate the spirit of rising above all obstacles to claim victory because we believe that women — from all walks of life — have to reinvent themselves every day. Two teams coming together symbolises the common vision we share for young girls to embrace an equal future, this women’s day.”

Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals Captain Meg Lanning said, “Sport is for all. Our sport, cricket, has come a long way for the women, and the Women’s Premier League, in just its two seasons so far has played a crucial role in improving that narrative. For any young girl watching this exciting tournament on TV or in a stadium, gives them the hope that they too can be on stage like this one day, and make their dreams come true.”

Delhi Capitals lost to UP Warriorz by one run in the crucial match played on Friday.

Members of both teams held a #SHEBELIEVESWEBELIEVE banner, while taking a lap of the ground, at the end of the game, thanking fans for coming over on this momentous day.
