Who can stop Mumbai Indians in the Women’s Premier League?
UP Warriorz was the only team yet to play, and consequently yet to lose, to Mumbai in the WPL and they did by eight wickets on Sunday in front of a packed Brabourne Stadium.
At the halfway mark in the tournament, Mumbai have 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 be best explained by a tale of two overs.
She finished her spell with figures of 3 for 33, the purple cap firmly on her head.
There was a mid-over timeout as Sciver-Brunt got checked for concussion. One has to wonder what the Mumbai captain discussed in the brief break as she returned to cart the Australian for a three boundaries and an effortlessly clean six to completely shatter the equation.
Harmanpreet took six balls to get off the mark, but ended with a fifty is 31 balls.
Just Harmanpreet things. Just Mumbai Indians things.
