The West Indies Women’s National Cricket Team cricketer Hayley Matthews, who plays for Mumbai Indians Women (MI-W) in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2023, provided her side with an excellent start in the match by picking wickets on the back-to-back deliveries.

Matthews conceded 11 runs in her first over and she came to bowl her second over in the last over of the powerplay. On the second ball of the 6th over, Hayley Matthews bowled a length ball on the fourth stump and Smriti Mandhana came down the track to go inside out. However, the RCB captain failed to make a good connection with the ball and she ended up playing it straight towards the backward point where Wong grabbed an easy catch.

After the dismissal of Smriti Mandhana, Heather Knight came to bat and she was castled for a golden duck. Hayley Matthews bowled a fuller-length delivery on the middle stump and Knight was beaten on the inside edge and the ball brushed the front pad before shattering the stumps.

“We would like to bat first. It looks like a good wicket to bat on and chasing builds pressure. We had a chat in the meeting that thinking about totals would not help, we have to play to our strengths and we will get the big total. One of the top four batters has to bat deep and if we can do that then we will post good totals,” Smriti Mandhana said at the toss.
