UP Warriorz won the toss & decided to bowl first against MI Women in Eliminator of the WPL 2023 championship. MI Women skipper Harmanpreet Kaur didn’t make any changes to their setup after winning against RCB Women. Harmanpreet Kaur has been the backbone of the batting line up where she has the knack of playing attacking as well as the waiting game.
MI Women had a pretty decent start to their power-play overs where they scored 46 runs for the loss of 1 wicket. UP Warriorz right arm over leg spinner Parshavi Chopra got the wicket of dangerous-looking Hayley Matthews who scored 26 runs in 26 balls where she struck 2 fours & 1 six. MI Women score at the end of 10 overs was 78-2.

Crucial Phase for MI Women
MI Women would be targeting a score in excess of 180 runs which would give them some sort of chance to win this eliminator. All eyes would be on Nat Sciver-Brunt where the right-handed batter needs to get make the most of the start as it won’t be easy for the new batter to dominate the terms.
UP Warriorz skipper Alyssa Healy would sense that a couple of wickets can put them in the ascendancy. The pitch doesn’t seem to have any significant demons where defending won’t be easy for MI Women against a lethal UP Warriorz batting lineup.
