Match Preview – UPW Women vs MI Women, Women’s Premier League 2022/23, 10th Match
Mumbai Indians vs UP Warriorz
Mumbai Indians are in cruise control with three wins in three games, each one of them superbly dominant. This game, therefore, could be the perfect opportunity to bring some of their other overseas players, like Chloe Tryon, into the mix, to give them game time when the sailing is smooth. They might also be better off playing a specialist bowler in place of Amanjot Kaur, who hasn’t been needed with either bat or ball so far.
But next in their way are UP Warriorz. Warriorz have empowered their young Indian talents: Kiran Navgire, Shweta Sehrawat, Devika Vaidya, Simran Shaikh to name a few. In Alyssa Healy, they have a captain who has already delivered outstanding returns on investment with her strong leadership style and bruising batting up front.
Mumbai Indians: 1 Yastika Bhatia (wk), 2 Hayley Matthews, 3 Nat Sciver-Brunt, 4 Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), 5 Amelia Kerr/Chloe Tryon, 6 Pooja Vastrakar, 7 Issy Wong, 8 Amanjot Kaur, 9 Humaira Kazi, 10 Jintimani Kalita, 11 Saika Ishaque
UP Warriorz: 1 Alyssa Healy (capt, wk), 2 Devika Vaidya, 3 Shweta Sehrawat, 4 Kiran Navgire, 5 Deepti Sharma, 6 Tahlia McGrath, 7 Grace Harris, 8 Simran Shaikh, 9 Sophie Ecclestone, 9 Rajeshwari Gayakwad, 11 Anjali Sarvani
“They’re making my job easier. Whoever comes in is eager to bowl. When you have so many options, your job is so easy.”
Harmanpreet Kaur is satisfied with the options available to her
“I think trust is the most important thing in building a successful environment. Over here at the UP Warriorz, I think we have finally got that trust and I am here trying to do the best for the franchise and the Indian players as well.”
