Mumbai Indians Women vs UP Warriorz Women, Women’s Premier League 2023, Eliminator Match Details, Schedule, Summary | ESPN.in
6:40pm UP Warriorz, on the other hand, did the seemingly tough job of halting Mumbai’s juggernaut. Yes they relied quite a bit on the middle-order duo of Tahlia McGrath and Grace Harris. But what impressed me the most about them – and captain Alyssa Healy has been vocal about it – is them backing the unheralded Indian players. Simran Shaikh has played all the games, Parshavi Chopra, Shweta Sehrawat, S Yashasri have all gotten game time. Do they have enough to win a ‘pressure game’ in this Eliminator?
Sanketp: “Mi started the tournament with the bang and almsot felt like they are invincibles but as soon as theyl surface started to slow down especially this Dy Patil one they struggled to put runs on the board. Up has very good spin bowling unit.”
6:35pm How did Mumbai get here? They started quite brilliantly, dominating and swatting aside every opposition that came their way. Mumbai won each of their first five games with captain Harmanpreet Kaur leading their batting charge. However, they didn’t end the league stage well and that meant they lost out on direct qualification to the final, which few would have predicted.
Saika Ishaque was the find of the season and soon, Amelia Kerr also caught up with her on the wickets charts. Ishque was wicketless in two of her last three outings and will perhaps have a point to prove. Hayley Matthews has also made her presence felt with both bat and ball. All eyes on Mumbai and their lower-order with the bat.
Mustafa Moudi: “Wishing a Very Happy Birthday to Alyssa Healy. With his tour getting over and No IPL Commitments, Hope Mitchell Starc turns up for this match !!” Think he was pictured in one of Healy’s birthday celebrations.
AkshayKSaha: “I think MI will come across some challenges but will win eventually.”
