The Blues started their bowling attack quite in fashion as they took early wickets in the game. Gardner & Harleen Deol both lost their wickets with a duck. Dayalan Hemalatha tried to help his team to reach a respected total. She remained not out with 29 runs. Shaika Ishaque claimed 4 wickets and bowled out Gujarat Giants for 64 runs. Beth Mooney couldn’t come down to bat after sustaining an injury and that can be the reason for this fall. Mumbai Indians won the game by a huge margin of 143 runs.
