Hope it continues. It's been very enjoyable so far. Everyone's very friendly. Great set-up here at Delhi Capitals," Meg Lanning was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

She definitely hits me for quite a few sixes in the nets (Healy). Happy to get one over her. Always an enjoyable competition when we come up against one another," said Jess Jonassen, Player of the Match.
