Mumbai Indians' winning streak is yet to be broken. Many assumed that Delhi would trouble them but Harmanpreet Kaur's team dominated & destroyed Meg Lanning's highflying Delhi at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai. Saika Ishaque, Issy Wong, and Hayley Matthews' spells were too hot to handle for Delhi's batters. Skipper Meg Lanning once again played an important inning & Jemimah complimented her really well but Mumbai's bowlers were too perfect for them. Delhi Capitals faced their first loss as Mumbai Indians continue their winning streak in the WPL 2023.
