Delhi Capitals reached the Women’s Premier League final with a five-wicket win over UP Warriorz.
England’s Alice Capsey took 3-26 and then scored 34 as Delhi reached their target of 139 with 13 balls to spare.
Mumbai had an opportunity to take top spot in the earlier fixture against Royal Challengers Bangalore, but took 16.3 overs to chase 126 which dented their net run-rate further.
Warriorz secured their place in the eliminator after a stunning chase of 178 against Gujarat Giants on Monday, but a day later their batting failed to put any pressure on Delhi’s pursuit of a final place.
Warriorz took 33 of those runs from the final two overs in a slow-paced innings, the batters pegged back by spin as Capsey took 3-26, Radha Yadav 2-28 and Jess Jonassen 1-24.
Delhi needed to win with at least two balls to spare to finish top of the table and their explosive opening partnership of Shafali Verma and leading run-scorer Meg Lanning started the chase by launching a stand of 56 in 4.5 overs.
It was the start of a fine all-round performance from Kerr as the New Zealand leg-spinner also took 3-22 and scored a calm unbeaten 31 as Mumbai lost wickets late in their chase.
Two further wickets fell in the 16th over but Kerr stood firm as they reached their target with 3.3 overs to spare.
