That's it from all of us for this game. Keep joining us for more cricketing action all around the globe. For now, this is Akshay Bhide, signing off, on behalf of my co-commentator Deepak Prakash and scorer Raju Khariya. Bye Bye. Good night.
Amelia Kerr (Player of the Match): "I think when you're bowling, I guess later on in the innings, sometimes you can get hit, but sometimes you can pick up wickets. And for me, it's just kind of working out the conditions and going to different variations and they managed to come out all right tonight, and just nice to be able to pick up some wickets there at the end. And I thought the way Shab started us off got us to that position to be able to keep on top. 

[Googly] Yeah, it's something I've kind of bowled throughout my whole career, but something I want to keep developing and, yeah, I guess I practice it a lot as well as my leg spinner, but I think it's a really important delivery, especially in T-20 cricket, into left-handers as well. It just gives you another option.

Charlotte Edwards (MI head coach) told me to stay at the crease until the end. I focused on playing my game with less risk. Playing for MI is fantastic. I love the people there the most. We have many players who can win matches, which is great to see."
Player of the Match: Amelia Kerr
Harmanpreet Kaur (Mumbai Indians Women Captain): "We have a balanced side. All all-rounders are best in their country and I just tell everyone to go out there and enjoy the game.

Shabnim has been great so far. Whenever she gets the opportunity, she wants to contribute to the team. The other bowlers also did a fine job. They have played with each other for a long time and it helps them.

I think we are going with the best match-ups. When you have a long bowling line-up, you have to go with the best match-ups and I'm proud of them.

Obviously, we want the top-order batters to give us a good start. It's about assessing the conditions and I believe that they will have a good game going forward."
Sixes of the Match: Harmanpreet Kaur (1 six)
Electric Striker of the Match: Tanuja Kanwar
Time for the post-match presentation....
Shabnim Ismail: "I went to Cape Town and worked with my bowling coach. I'm happy that I can contribute and I'm happy that we are on the winning side.

I always say, I still want to the be the quickest in the world. I'm working hard on it. I have worked hard on it. There have been a few wickets for me and I'm happy that I have been picking up for the team.

I don't like to put pressure on myself. I know if I do the basics right, I will get the results. I always keep saying to Issy that my success is her success and her success is my success.

The wicket we played on the first day was good. There was a nice carry. But it was slow and low tonight. After bowling a couple of balls, I assessed the conditions and bowled wicket-to-wicket."
Beth Mooney (Gujarat Giants Women Captain): "Yeah, I was a bit nervous during the week about the first game against Mumbai, but got through unscathed, thankfully. I think, you know, we let ourselves down a little bit in that first ten overs, but I think credit has to go to TK (Tanuja Kanwar) and Bryce at the end there. They got us to a defendable total. We're probably 20 runs short in the end to make it a challenging chase for Mumbai, but there was certainly a lot to take away from that first innings. 

[Talking about Kathryn Bryce] Yeah, she was very good tonight. She's been a great find for us. I think she's just. We know exactly what we're going to get from her. She's got a nice swing with the bat and can swing it with the ball as well. So hopefully this is just a sign of things to come for her.

I think sometimes you've got to take the result out of it, especially with a new team and players playing in different roles. So certainly from my point of view, it's disappointing to lose, but absolutely, we'll take some positives out of that and move on to the next game."
10:42 PM IST, Local Time: That’s it. Harmanpreet Kaur finishes things in style. The Mumbai Indians Women beat the Gujarat Giants Women by five wickets and make it two in two. The defending champions did an excellent job with the ball in hand to restrict the Giants Women to 126/9 before chasing it down in 18.1 overs. The Giants Women get off to a losing start to the Women’s Premier League 2024.

Chasing 127, the Mumbai Indians Women lost Yastika Bhatia (7) in the third over. Hayley Matthews (7) also holed out in the deep in the very next over. Nat Sciver-Brunt was joined by her skipper Harmanpreet Kaur. Nat played some lovely strokes and scored a 18-ball 22 before getting run out in the eighth over. Kaur looked settled at the crease and kept rotating the strike with Amelia Kerr.

The Giants Women failed to create further inroads. The pair of Kaur and Kerr pounced on anything loose and made sure that they kept the required run rate under control. Kerr departed on 31 in the 16th over and Pooja Vastrakar was cleaned up on one in the next over but Kaur kept her calm and remained unbeaten on 46 to take her side across the line. Tanuja Kanwar registered figures of 2/21 but it wasn’t enough as the Giants Women failed to defend the total.

After being asked to bat first, the Gujarat Giants Women got off to a disastrous start. They lost Veda Krishnamurthy (0) and Harleen Deol (8) in quick succession. Skipper Beth Mooney along with Phoebe Litchfield led the recovery work but the latter fell on seven as they ended the powerplay on 43/3. Mooney looked good for her 24 but fell in the 11th over.

The Giants Women kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were reeling at 78/7. Kathryn Bryce and Tanuja Kanwar stitched a very good partnership of 48 for the eighth wicket. Kanwar fell on 28 in the last over and Bryce remained unbeaten on 25 to help her side get to 126/9 at the end of their innings. Amelia Kerr and Shabnim Ismail bowled brilliantly for Mumbai Indians Women and picked up four and three wickets respectively. Their batters then stepped up and chased down the total with 11 balls to spare.
