All-round Amelia Kerr, Harmanpreet seal Mumbai Indian's second win

Mumbai Indians brushed aside the challenge of the inaugural season's last-placed Gujarat Giants in WPL at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Set a modest target of 127, Mumbai Indians batters played sensibly on a slow wicket to chase down the target with captain Harmanpreet Kaur standing tall and scoring an unbeaten 46.

Amelia Kerr made 31 to follow up on her bowling heroics while Nat-Sciver Brunt scored 22 to ease MI's chase.

Shabnim Ismail, the seamer from South Africa, trapped Harleen Doel (8) leg before, to put pressure on Mooney.

At 58/5 in 10.1 overs after Beth Mooney was dismissed, Gujarat Giants didn't look like they would even get to 100.

Scotland import Kathryn Bryce (25 not out, 24 balls) and Tanuja Kanwar (28 off 21 balls) got together to provide some stability to the GG innings and then went after the bowling.

But young Kiwi leg-spinner Amelia Kerr claimed the last four wickets, starting with Ashleigh Gardner (15) in the 14th over. Tanuja was one of the two who were stumped off her bowling as MI regained control.
