Royal Challengers Bangalore, riding on Ellyse Perry's best-ever bowling figures in the history of Women's Premier League, defeated Mumbai Indians by seven wickets to make it to the playoffs.

Ellyse Perry snapped six for 15 runs as RCB dismissed Mumbai Indians for 113 runs.

The Australian allrounder then struck an unbeaten 40 and shared a 76-run stand with Richa Ghosh (36 not out) to take RCB to the winning score of 115 for 3 in just 15 overs.

Despite a steady start from the openers, Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Molineux chased down the low score. Nat Sciver-Brunt was having a shocker of a performance on the field having dropped two crucial catches.
