1st Innings

  • Gujarat Giants have achieved a very competitive total.
  • They played significantly better than they did against the Mumbai Indians women’s team.
  • Their batters set them off to a strong start, but UP answered with three early wickets. Gardner and Deol made a useful stand for the fifth wicket just as the bowler’s side was beginning to come back.
  • Gardner was out, but Harleen hit four consecutive boundaries and lost a well-deserved fifty.
  • Hemalatha came in late and helped the Giants reach the 180-run milestone.
  • Deepti Sharma and Sophie Ecclestone each got two wickets for the UP Warriorz.

2nd Innings

  • They just had to defend 52 runs in the final three overs.
  • But it was not to be, as Grace Harris stunned them and left them sad. Such an onslaught there at the end, with Ecclestone, also playing a role.
  • But Harris stole the show, taking on Gujarat’s top bowler, Kim Garth, and blasting her for a hat trick of fours in the 18th over.
  • Garth had bagged a five-for before that, but Harris blasted for 20 during that over, and the game ignited as Harris became uncontrollable from there.
  • An undefeated 59 off 26 balls turned the match upside down.
