Mumbai Indians are now assured of a top-three finish following their impressive 55-run victory against Gujarat Giants (GG) at the Brabourne Stadium in the Women's Premier League (WPL) 2023. Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who was adjudged the player of the match for her 30-ball 51, credited the support staff for her side's dream run in the tournament.
MI have won all their five games in the competition now and sit pretty at the top of the table with 10 points.
"Credit goes to all the support staff and teammates. The way we have been playing, we want to continue. We are so positive and they always want to do well for the team. When we got this team, I was really happy, they were doing well for the country and now they will do the same for MI," Harmanpreet said at the post-match presentation.
GG managed to restrict a powerful batting line-up like MI to 162 for 8, which is something Sneh Rana is pleased with but admits her side's batting needs to improve.
"I am proud of the girls for restricting MI to 162, it was a good start, but unfortunately we couldn't get there. It was a chasable score. Definitely, batters need to focus right through, need to build at least two partnerships, Harleen was fantastic today in the field, she took a catch and effected a run-out. We will definitely work on our batting," Rana said.
GG, who have won just one game in the competition, have a chance to add two more points in their kitty, when they take on Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Brabourne Stadium on Thursday (March 16). MI, on the other hand, will hope to keep their winning streak going against UP Warriorz on Saturday (March 18) at the DY Patil Stadium.
