Mumbai Indians scripted history as they won the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League on Sunday, March 26 beating Delhi Capitals by seven wickets in the final. Mumbai chased down the target of 132 in 19.3 overs, courtesy of Nat Sciver-Brunt’s magnificent knock of 60* off 55 deliveries.
Mumbai Indians’ skipper also played a crucial part in the finale as she stitched together an invaluable 72-run stand with Nat Sciver-Brunt to steady the ship for her side.
“Great experience, we were waiting for so many years. Everyone enjoyed this throughout the dressing room. It feels like a dream, for everyone here. So many people were asking when WPL will come and that day is here, and we are so happy and proud.
“Very happy with how everyone performed. I think staying positive is key, we were lucky with full tosses going in our favour. This is a special moment for all of us, I have been waiting a long time and today I know what it feels like to be winning (laughs),” Harmanpreet said at the post-match presentation.
