Speaking after the game, Shafali said, "DC's culture is amazing. It's great fun to be around the team and opening with Meg. She communicates with me after every ball, guides me with my shot selections throughout the innings. It has been helping me a lot."

Reflecting on the performance, Kapp, who was named player of the match, stated, "It was a nice wicket to bowl on, but I feel there was value in good shots and bowling as well. It's a good team win for us. I felt like we needed that after the close game against Mumbai, so it was nice to contribute to the team's win," Shafali added.
