Gujarat Giants had the worst start to the tournament, as their skipper Beth Mooney was injured in the first match of the WPL, against Mumbai Indians.
It was recently announced that South African cricketer Laura Wolvaardt will fill in for the injured Beth Mooney for the remainder of the season. Woolvardt was released by her team while in Pakistan for the PCB’s Women’s League exhibition matches so that she could play for Gujarat Giants.
Laura Wolvaardt, who replaces Beth Mooney, will look to make an immediate impact. Wolvaardt represented Super Women at the 2023 Women’s League Exhibition matches in Pakistan on the day of the announcement. On March 8, the Super Women defeated the Amazons, with Wolvaardt leading the way with an unbeaten 53 runs off 36 deliveries.
