UP Warriorz pulled off a massive heist after beating defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) by 7 wickets in Match No.6 of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 on Wednesday, February 28 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

Vrinda Dinesh, who did not have great outings against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Capitals (DC), injured her shoulder while fielding and hence did not come out to bat. The Warriorz picked Kiran Navgire as Alyssa Healy’s opening partner, and it turned out to be a stroke of genius.

Navgire took the Warriorz off to a flying start in their run-chase as they scored 61 runs in the powerplay. Her onslaught meant that the Warriorz brought the required run-rate down to 7.21 while chasing 162. Navgire raced to her half-century off 25 balls and went on to score

57 runs off 31 deliveries with the help of 6 fours and 4 sixes.

Healy, who looked out of sorts in the first 2 matches, scored 33 runs off 29 balls and put on 94 runs for the opening wicket off 9.1 overs along with Navgire.

After the stupendous start, the Warriorz stuttered a wee bit as they lost Navgire, Healy and Tahlia McGrath in a space of less than 2 overs. Issy Wong, who returned to the playing XI in place of Shabnim Ismail, removed McGrath and Healy to cause some jitters in the Warriorz camp.

However, Grace Harris and Deepti Sharma’s unbeaten 65-run stand made sure that the Warriorz romped home with 21 balls to spare. Harris threw her bat around to score 38 runs off 17 balls with 6 fours and a six. Deepti, on the other hand, lent her support with a knock of 27 off 20.
