Delhi Capitals Women vs Mumbai Indians Women, 7th Match
Mumbai Indians Women won by 8 wkts
How good was Saika Ishaque today. How good is this Mumbai Indians unit. They look incredibly strong with three wins out of three games, all of them by comprehensive margins. Even Delhi Capitals were no match for them here at the DY Patil Stadium. So that's it from our coverage for this one. Thanks for joining in. Until next time, it's goodbye from Sagar Chawla on behalf of Praveen, Kumar Abhisekh Das and Pradeep Krishnamurthy.
Saika Ishaque, Player of the Match: Feels great. Feels like a dream. The captain, coaches are supporting me, which is why such performances are happening. It's about one ball at a time.
Kaur, MI captain: Today our bowlers did really well. They're making my job easier. Whoever comes in is eager to bowl. When you have so many options, your job is so easy. Credit to our bowlers. Bowling according to the field is key in T20s and we're able to do that. After the last game we all discussed that we bowled some bad balls. Yastika and Hayley gave us a really good start. Now the tournament is going to start because the pitches are going to be on the slower side.
Lanning, DC captain: Hindsight's a wonderful thing. But we were in a similar position after the 12-over mark. Mumbai bowled excellently. That's the game - sometimes it doesn't go your way. The pitch definitely had something in it for the bowlers, which is a good thing. You can't go out there looking at 180 from the start. Need to build partnerships. That's what we weren't able to do today. I thought Rodrigues came out and attacked the bowling. Capsey's bowling beautifully. Hopefully I can keep contributing and we have a few more wins in us.
22:08 Local Time, 16:38 GMT, 22:08 IST: So it's a hattrick of wins for Mumbai Indians to start their campaign in the WPL. They remain the only unbeaten team after handing Delhi their first taste of defeat tonight. And what a brilliant performance again. It was the top-of-the-table clash here in Navi Mumbai, and Mumbai Indians have come out on top in some style. Their bowlers did the majority of the work as they bundled out the Delhi Capitals for just 105. Saika Ishaque and Issy Wong were absolutely brilliant, both picking up three-fers after superb spells, while Hayley Matthews took three wickets as well. In reply, Matthews and Yastika Bhatia in particular got the chase off to a flier. The powerplay yielded 47 with both openers unbeaten, and there was no way back for DC from there.
