Bombay Indians 164 for 2 (Harmanpreet 53*, Sciver-Brunt 45*) pace UP Warriorz 159 for 6 (Healy 58, McGrath 50, Ishaque 3-33) for eight wickets
Who can stop the Mumbai Indians in the Women’s Premier League?
UP Warriorz were the only team yet to play, and consequently yet to lose, to Mumbai in the WPL and they did so by eight wickets on Sunday in front of a packed Brabourne Stadium.
Halfway through the tournament, Mumbai played four and won four with the following margins: 143 runs (Gujarat Giants), nine wickets (Royal Challengers Bangalore), eight wickets (Delhi Capitals) and eight wickets (Warriorz).
The match, and Mumbai’s prowess, can perhaps best be explained by a two-over tale.
He finished his spell with figures of 3 for 33, the purple cap firmly on his head.
There was a timeout halfway through when Sciver-Brunt was checked for concussion. One has to wonder what the Mumbai captain discussed at the short break when she returned to lead the Aussie by three bounds and an effortless six clean to completely break the equation.
Harmanpreet took six balls to go off the mark, but finished on fifty-31 balls.
Harmanpreet stuff only. Just Mumbai Indian stuff.
