UP Warriorz won a thriller against MI Women in the 15th match of WPL. UP Warriorz won the match by 5 wickets and chased down the target of 128 in 19.3 overs. With this win, they are now one step closer to making it to the playoffs as they have 6 points in 6 matches.
Grace Harris played a match-winning knock of 39 runs in 28 balls where she struck 7 fours and showed a lot of intent on a sluggish track. UP Warriorz had a shaky start to their run chase as they scored 27 runs in the power-play overs for the loss of 2 wickets. Tahlia McGrath & Grace Harris were involved in an invaluable partnership of 44 runs in 34 balls. UP Warriorz would be slightly disappointed that they took the game till the last over where Sophie Ecclestone struck a six on the 3rd ball of the 20th over. Sophie Ecclestone scored 16 runs in 17 balls & Deepti Sharma scored 13 runs in 14 balls.

MI Women got a wake-up call as they lost their first match in WPL 2023 where they would rue their batting performance as other 20-odd runs could have made the difference. Amelia Kerr was the pick of the bowlers where she took 2 scalps & gave away 22 runs in her 4-over spell.
UP Warriorz would be ecstatic with this win. UP Warriorz spinners Sophie Ecclestone & Deepti Sharma spurned a web as they took 5 wickets amongst themselves and made sure that they don’t give any freebies to the batters. UP Warriorz skipper Alyssa Healy’s decision to include Anjali Sarvani paid off as he took the key wicket of Yastika Bhatia in the power-play overs.

Twitter Reacts As UP Warriorz Beat MI Women
Sophie Ecclestone is here. Sophie Ecclestone is there. Oh, she is everywhere. What a player!
She makes spin bowling look easy. And she can tonk too.
Deepti also would be pleased that she made a contribution in this game.

I wanted to support a normal team, one that will lose to the best and beat the worst sides.
I ended up with the team that ended Bangalore’s losing streak and Mumbai’s winning streak.
Looks like the future is going to be random. https://t.co/qCy5qn1UtS

Sophie Ecclestone, what a player. Hardly ever bowls a bad spell, scores crucial runs.
Top three more or less seem locked in now, barring something exceptional.

It’s good we lost this match not single handedly.
I just hope now this gives Edwards and co a bit of think tank.
Also glad an off day comes in league stage!.#MIvsUPW#WPL2023
