Mooney-led Gujarat Giants have opted to bowl first in the season opening match against Mumbai Indians in the inaugural season of WPL.
Beth Mooney – We will bowl. Looks pretty even with the grass, it’s a hard and flat surface, plenty of runs here. Absolutely thrilled to be part of (WPL), a big crowd and I’m loving it. We have an entertaining group, we speak a lot about cricket. We have had the experience of playing in front of a big crowd, we can pass it on to the younger members. Three seamers and four spinners in our playing XI today, looking at taking some early wickets.
Mumbai Indians Women (Playing XI): Hayley Matthews, Yastika Bhatia(w), Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Nat Sciver-Brunt, Amelia Kerr, Amanjot Kaur, Pooja Vastrakar, Humaira Kazi, Issy Wong, Jintimani Kalita, Saika Ishaque
