Player of the Match

Harmanpreet Kaur is Player of the Match. So we’ll have a two-in-one interview: It was a brilliant start. Feeling like dream come true….first day. We were hoping all things going our way, and they were in our favour. (24 hour ago, what were the chats?) We kept things simple and clear. Told players to play natural. Obviously its a big day for women’s cricket but it was all about backing yourself. (Her innings) I just thought I will watch the ball and back myself. I will not think too much, and instead react to the situation. (Captaincy chat at halfway mark) When we were batting, we knew it is a very good batting wicket. When the other team was bowling in the right spot, it was not easy to play. So told our bowlers it will not be easy if you bowl in the right spot. (What next?) Keep doing the same. Big victory, yes, but next games are important.”

Nita Ambani

Nita Ambani: “I think it is such an iconic day and iconic moment for women in sport. It is so thrilling to be part of this wonderful tournament WPL today. (Young girls in the crowd) I loved every moment. I hope this inspires many young girls across the country to take up sports, realise their dreams and follow their hearts. (Result) Mumbai Indians is known to play a certain kind of cricket – fearless and exciting, and our girls have performed so well today. I am proud how they played, it was all-round. Special mention about our captain Harman, what a special innings she played today 65 in 30 balls. Also I felt Amelia Kerr was fabulous – she batted well, bowled well. (Fans) It was so wonderful to see so much support in the stadium.”

Nat Sciver-Brunt

Nat Sciver-Brunt, Mumbai: “Playing the first game was brilliant. When we walked out, it was a big occasion, so I took a few breaths to come down. (Many cultures) That’s the best thing about such competitions. Saika is exciting, good to see her enjoy her wickets so much. (Harmanpreet) It’s very good to be on the same team. I’ve had that done to me in the past. She looks to calm in the middle. (Edwards, coach) She’s excited for all of us.”

Sneh Rana

Sneh Rana, vice captain of Gujarat Giants: “This is just the start. Some people take time to soak this in, some do it quicker. This was a learning experience and we will come back stronger. Physio will update about Mooney in sometime. (In case she is captain tomorrow) It is an opportunity sure but what I’ll want is that the team does not repeat their mistakes. I will tell the girls to keep their heads high and to learn from today. Definitely we will perform good.”
