In the Eliminator of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2023, Mumbai Indians (MI) got the better of UP Warriorz and booked their spot in the tournament’s final.

Chasing the huge target of 183, the Warriorz never really got the desired momentum as they kept on losing wickets at regular intervals. UP were three down for 21 before Kiran Navgire and Grace Harris tried to calm things down by adding 35 runs for the fourth wicket.

After losing Harris, Navgire formed another crucial partnership of 28 runs for the fifth wicket with Deepti Sharma. Then came Issy Wong, who had already dismissed UP’s skipper Alyssa Healy. Wong completely destroyed the Warriorz, whatever left hopes, as she went on to take a hat-trick to ensure MI set up the summit clash with Delhi Capitals (DC). Eventually, UP got bundled out for 110, losing the contest by 72 runs.

Earlier, after being asked to bat, Mumbai went on to post a massive total of 182/4 in their assigned 20 overs, courtesy of Nat Sciver-Brunt’s splendid knock. The star all-rounder stayed unbeaten on 72 off just 38 deliveries, including 9 fours and 2 sixes to power MI to an enormous total.

Apart from the veteran English cricketer, Amelia Kerr (29), Hayley Matthews (26) and Yastika Bhatia (21) chipped in with valuable contributions. For UP, Sophie Ecclestone picked up two wickets for 39 runs in her quota of 4 overs.
