Sajeevan Sajana's last-ball six wins it for Mumbai Indians against Delhi Capitals

Heading towards the opening game of Women’s Premier League season two, a high-scoring last-ball thriller would’ve probably been at the top of the wish list for organizers and fans alike.

Delhi Capitals were in a promising position after being asked to bat first as Alice Capsey (75 off 53) played the knock of the match to take them to 171/5.

Mumbai Indians then stitched together a fine chase as Yastika Bhatia and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur struck half-centuries.

South Africa pacer Shabnim Ismail wasted no time in showing her class and experience. Shafali Verma was cleaned up early and DC found themselves under pressure at 6/1 after three overs.

Australia’s Jess Jonassen for a spot in the playing XI, added a 64-run partnership with skipper Meg Lanning and a 74-run stand with Jemimah Rodrigues.

Yastika was joined by Harmanpreet at the crease and the duo added 56 runs for the third wicket before Arundhati provided another breakthrough.
