Harmanpreet Kaur has been named the player of the match for her explosive batting. She smashed an unbeaten 53 off 33 balls.
"Very happy with the performance. I can't be thankful enough, the way we are playing and we are gelling together. This is the best tournament so far. After six overs, the ball started turning in the second innings. I was a little surprised with that. Thanks to Nat, she played really well. I got time to settle in. The way they were batting, we were a little tense. But I knew that if we are able to take one or two wickets, we could stop them, because we knew Harris was not playing and they didn't have anyone who could hit hard. Saika's over was the turning point. She has been the one taking responsibility. These things happen, but I have trust on her. That is why I brought her back and she got crucial wickets."
This is what the WPL 2023 points table looks like after Match 10 on Sunday. Mumbai on top with 4 wins in 4 games, followed by Delhi, UP, Gujarat, and Bangalore.
UP Warriorz Alyssa Healy after the 8-wicket loss to Mumbai Indians in Match 10 of WPL 2023.
"I think we were probably 15-20 runs short. We needed a set batter at the end. It was as scratchy as it comes for me. It wasn't easy. We didn't score as many boundaries as the Mumbai Indians did. We also bowled too much junk and gave too many boundaries. We just have to see how we can do well with the players available. We have some bowlers on the bench and Harris as well. No prizes for being a good human is it? When an lbw that is not out is given out and Harmanpreet is bowled but the bails don't fall. We want to be a really good fielding side and she [Simran Shaikh] put her hands up and apologised and she did some good things on the field after that"
