That’s a wrap from our side as well. We appreciate your participation from all across the world. On behalf of my co-commentator Megh Mandaliya and Scorer/Analyst Paras Yadav, I, Deepak Prakash, am signing off. Please join us for the other fixtures across the world. Until then, Ta-Ta, Bye-Bye.✌✌
Harmanpreet Kaur (Mumbai Indians Women Captain and Player of the match): "Very happy about the performance. I can't be more thankful for the way we are playing and gelling together. This has been the best tournament so far. I think was a little surprised by the turn in the second innings. But thanks to Natalie Sciver-Brunt; she played really well. Because of her, I got some time in the wicket and then executed the plans.

We were a little tensed about the way they were batting. Saika Ishaque's over was the turning point for us. Whenever Saika Ishaque is bowling, the batters are under pressure and that was the reason I brought her on. Me and Natalie were calculating very well. Tomorrow is a rest day for us before another game."    
Kiran Prabhu Navgire is the powerful striker of the match.
It's time for the presentation.
Natalie Sciver-Brunt (Mumbai Indians Women): "It feels really good. We are enjoying cricket and the team is high-spirited at the moment. There was some early movement and I was trying not to go for boundaries. It was definitely gripping for the spinners. Really enjoy batting with Harmanpreet Kaur and with everyone else as well." 
Alyssa Healy (UP Warriorz Women Captain): "We just couldn't finish well, and we were probably 16 to 20 batters short. We couldn't find the boundary as frequently as we would have liked since it wasn't an easy wicket.

We'll assess where we can improve. In two days, we will show up, play RCB, and then leave. We aspire to be a tremendously strong fielding team that seizes chances. As a team, we are working extremely hard and making every effort, so maybe the outcomes will be favourable." 
10: 54 PM IST | That’s it! Another comprehensive performance from the Mumbai Indians and they continue their unbeaten streak in the tournament. They have overpowered the UP Warriorz by 8 wickets and Mumbai now wins four on the bounce. More importantly, they have now defeated every opponent in the tournament. Simply outstanding from Harmanpreet Kaur and her troops. 

In pursuit of 160, the Mumbai Indians openers Yastika Bhatia and Hayley Kristen Matthews started the innings on an electrifying note and exerted pressure on Warriorz straightaway. Both the batters went all guns blazing and made the most of the field restrictions. The left-hander Bhatia was dropped twice inside the first six and she went all around the park following that. The right-handed Matthews played the second fiddle to her and kept moving the scorecard. 

The UP Warriorz lost both their reviews early on as both Matthews and Bhatia narrowly escaped two calls. The left-right duo swatted 51 off the powerplay before UP Warriorz bagged two quick wickets. Rajeshwari Gayakwad drew first blood for the Warriorz by dismissing Bhatia for 42(27) and that was soon followed by the massive scalp of Matthews as she was outwitted by Sophie Ecclestone. 


Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur then got together with Natalie Sciver-Brunt and the duo absorbed the pressure and applied some brakes. However, the UP bowlers could not hold them off for a very long time as the duo started the onslaught to cruise Mumbai back into this contest. The UP bowlers had no answers whatsoever as the right-hander pair kept on toying with the bowlers. 

Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur completed her second half-century and secured a fantastic 53*(33) after surviving a scare. Natalie Sciver-Brunt also played her part to perfection and bagged 45* (31) before finishing things in style. The duo glued up an unbeaten 106-run partnership and handed Mumbai Indian a few more easy points.

Earlier in the day, after electing to bat first,
Devika Vaidya and Alyssa Healy spearheaded the innings for UP  Warriorz and the duo started the innings on a watchful note. However, it wasn’t long enough before the purple-cap holder Saika Ishaque drew the first blood for Mumbai by trapping Vaidya 6(5) in front. 

Kiran Prabhu Navgire then joined forces with the UP skipper Healy and hurried the innings straightaway to give back the momentum to the Warriorz. Healy used her feet excellently and counterattacked the high-flying Mumbai bowlers. The duo cruised Warriorz to 48/1 after the powerplay before Amelia Kerr removed Navgire 17(14) and ceased the 50-run stand between Healy and Navgire. 

However, that could not pause the run scoring, as Tahlia McGrath, the next batter in, went on a rampage against Amelia Kerr and continued the hostile approach. Both McGrath and Healy kept on walloping boundaries at regular intervals and the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side was at the sea. Both the right-handers got to their respective half-century before Saika Ishaque once again delivered the goods for Mumbai. 

The left-arm spinner removed both Healy 58(46) and McGrath 50(37) in a single over and ceased the 82-run stand between the duo. Since then, the Warriorz failed to capitalize on the foundation as they lost a cluster of wickets at the backend and Mumbai restricted them to a chasable total. Ishaque was the pick of bowlers and she finished her stint with the figures of 3/33. Kerr also bagged a couple of crucial wickets while Hayley Kristen Matthews had one wicket to her name. Stick around for the post-match presentation! 

17.3 S Ismail to N Sciver
6 SIX!! Sciver finishes things in style!! The winning streak continues for Mumbai Indians Women!! Back of a length delivery on the middle and leg stump line. Sciver plants her legs and pulls it hard and pulls it well as the ball sails all the way over the mid-wicket for a maximum. Mumbai Indians Women thumped UP Warriorz Women by 8 wickets with 15 balls to spare.
The 100 partnership is up between Harmanpreet Kaur and Natalie Sciver-Brunt.
17.2 S Ismail to N Sciver
4 FOUR!! One bounce and into the fence!! Back of a length delivery on the off and middle stump line. Sciver gets in the position and pulls it down to square leg region for a boundary.
This is criminal stuff from Shabnim Ismail. Another NO BALL from her and a Free Hit coming up now.
17.2 S Ismail to N Sciver
NB No ball!! Good length delivery on the stumps. Sciver nudges it to short mid-wicket for a dot. No ball signaled as the bowler overstepped.
17.1 S Ismail to N Sciver
0 A touch fuller delivery on the middle and leg. Sciver flicks it to silly mid-on.

Shabnim Ismail comes back into the attack and Mumbai Indians require only 7 now.
