Mumbai Indians booked their spot in the final on Sunday with a dominant display against UPW. The focus was on the Australians in the UPW team, with Healy, McGrath, and Harris expected to chase down a big score. However, it was the English bowler Issy Wong who stole the show with her fast and straight bowling. She took a hat-trick that turned the game in favor of MIW, with Healy falling early to set the tone. While Kiran Navgire batted well, the other UPW players struggled to make a significant contribution.

MIW's batters played exceptionally well, setting a big total on a ground that favored chasing. And the MIW bowlers were equally impressive, bowling superbly to secure their place in the final.

Wong dismissed Healy early, setting the tone for the game. Apart from Kiran Navgire, who batted powerfully, the other UPW players failed to contribute significantly. MIW captain Kaur made proactive changes, which worked well, particularly bringing Wong back to take a hat trick that hastened the end of the game. MIW batted excellently and bowled superbly to secure their place in the final. The game took place on a ground that favoured chasing, making their performance even more impressive.

MI vs UP-W LIVE: That is it!

Gayakwad is dismissed LBW by Saika Ishaque, and she chooses not to review the decision. It was a plumb dismissal as she missed playing around a length delivery on the stumps. The ball struck her back leg, and the impact was enough to crash into the stumps. MIW's victory was sealed by this wicket, and they now advance to the final. Gayakwad scored 5 runs off 9 balls, including one boundary. The wicket fell under the bowling of Saika Ishaque.

22:40 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: UP 9 Down

Anjali Sarvani is bowled by Jintimani Kalita. The delivery was a good length, angling towards leg-stump, and Sarvani attempted a swing but missed the ball. The ball kept a bit low and hit the stumps, causing the dismissal. Anjali Sarvani departs after scoring 5 runs off 11 balls. The wicket is claimed by Jintimani Kalita.

22:27 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Deepti Sharma Departs

Deepti Sharma is caught by Jintimani Kalita off the bowling of Matthews. MIW is showing great form with yet another impressive catch. Matthews deliberately slowed down the ball, forcing Sharma to reach for the sweep shot, resulting in a top-edge that lands short of Kalita at short fine-leg. However, Kalita quickly moves across and takes the catch with both hands just before the ball hits the ground. The umpires check for a clean catch, which is confirmed. As a result, Deepti Sharma is dismissed for 16 runs off 20 balls, including 3 boundaries. The wicket falls under the bowling of Matthews.

22:21 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Hat-trick for Wong

Wong secures a hat-trick by bowling out Ecclestone with a full delivery outside off. Ecclestone tries to drive the ball, but it hits the inside edge of her bat and drags back onto the stumps. The crowd inside the DY Patil is going wild, and the MIW team surrounds Wong, who is ecstatic. Ecclestone was out for a golden duck.

Simran Shaikh is bowled out by Wong with a cross-seam yorker on leg-stump. Shaikh tried to clear her front leg for a drive but missed the ball, and the leg-stump was hit. As every wicket UPW loses, the camera pans to Mitch Starc and Alyssa Healy. Shaikh scored 0 runs off 1 ball.

Kiran Navgire attempts a full shot and is caught out by Nat Sciver-Brunt at deep mid-wicket off the bowling of Wong. Despite Navgire's valiant effort, the English all-rounder's catch was too good. Wong and Sciver-Brunt celebrate the wicket with a roar and a fist pump. Navgire had scored 43 runs off 27 balls with 4 fours and 3 sixes. The asking rate kept increasing, making it difficult for Navgire.

21:53 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Grace Harris departs

Grace Harris is dismissed by Nat Sciver-Brunt, caught by Wong, resulting in a soft dismissal. Sciver-Brunt celebrates with a double-fist pump. The delivery was a length delivery on the stumps, possibly another off-pace delivery, and Harris flicked the ball towards long-on, where the fielder was stationary. If Harris had hit the ball with more power, she would have easily cleared the fielder, but she sort of checked her shot, resulting in an easy catch for Wong. Harris departs after scoring 14 runs off 12 balls, including three fours. The dismissal is recorded as Grace Harris c Wong b Nat Sciver-Brunt 14(12) [4s-3].

21:38 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Huge blow for UP

Kiran Navgire runs out McGrath, further worsening UP's performance. Amanjot, positioned at extra-cover, demonstrated quick reflexes and threw the ball on top of the stumps as soon as Navgire drove it to her left. Navgire immediately called for a run, but McGrath was slow to respond and was just short of the crease when Yastika collected the ball and whipped the bails off. With this, MIW are now considered the heavy favorites. McGrath is out, having scored seven runs off six balls, including one four, and the dismissal is recorded as McGrath run out (Amanjot Kaur/Yastika) 7(6) [4s-1].

21:29 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Back-to-back wickets

Healy is caught by Kaur off Wong's bowling, resulting in a huge wicket for the MIW team, much to the disappointment of Healy's husband, Mitch Starc, who can only grimace as he watches on. The delivery was full and aimed at the middle stump, with a hint of outswing, and Healy had decided to flick the ball through mid-wicket. However, the swing caused a thick leading-edge, resulting in a comfortable catch for Kaur at mid-off. The MIW camp celebrates the wicket. Healy departs after scoring 11 runs off just six balls, including two fours. The dismissal is recorded as Healy c Kaur b Wong 11(6) [4s-2].

 

21:25 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Shweta Sehrawat Departs

Shweta Sehrawat is caught by Matthews off Saika Ishaque, resulting in a wicket-maiden for Ishaque who is visibly thrilled and fist-pumps in celebration. Despite no runs off the first five deliveries, Sehrawat attempts to score off the last ball by making room outside leg and driving the full delivery in the air, only to find the fielder at extra-cover. Matthews takes a comfortable catch, and Sehrawat departs after scoring just one run off eight balls. The dismissal is recorded as Shweta Sehrawat c Matthews b Saika Ishaque 1(8).

 

21:07 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Mid-innings

Sciver-Brunt was dropped by Ecclestone when she was on six, but she made UP Warriorz regret it with an outstanding display, scoring 72 runs off only 38 balls. The late cameos from Melie Kerr and Pooja Vastrakar also contributed well, propelling MI to a total of 182, which appears to be a challenging score in a knockout game. In the last five overs, MI scored a remarkable 66 runs, with UP Warriorz struggling to contain them. Even Ecclestone, who had previously taken the important wicket of Kaur, was hit around the park.

20:50 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Nat Sciver Brunt Hits Fifty

In style, Nat Sciver Brunt reaches her half-century with a boundary hit to long-off, prompting the MI players to rise to their feet in a round of applause.

20:33 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Kaur Departs

Kaur's stumps have been shattered by Ecclestone, out bowled! This is a crucial wicket and it's no wonder Ecclestone, who has been exceptional throughout the tournament, claimed it. As the leading wicket-taker, she continues to impress. Kaur attempted to advance down the track, but Ecclestone appeared to anticipate her move and delivered a full delivery. Kaur missed the ball and it struck the stumps, resulting in her dismissal. Kaur departs for 14 runs off 15 deliveries, including one four.

20:14 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Parshavi Chopra Strikes

Matthews tries to pull a short ball aimed at the stumps from Parshavi Chopra but fails to get enough power behind it to clear the boundary. Kiran Navgire takes a comfortable catch around her head at long-on. There is no doubt about the legality of the catch this time. Matthews departs after scoring 26 runs off 26 balls, which included two fours and one six. Parshavi Chopra picks up the crucial wicket for the team.

20:02 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Ecclestone drops a catch

On the last ball of the powerplay, Ecclestone drops a crucial catch off the bats of Sciver-Brunt. Such mistakes are unacceptable in a high-stakes match like this. It remains to be seen what impact this will have on the game. In the meantime, Ecclestone is given the ball for the seventh over, and she will be eager to make amends for her error. However, there's more disappointment for the team as Sarvani fails to stop the ball from racing away to the boundary, adding four more runs to MI's tally.

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Nat-Sciver Brunt in the middle

The sixth over sees Rajeshwari Gayakwad with the ball, as Matthews and Nat-Sciver Brunt pair up in the middle. Brunt announces herself with a magnificent boundary towards the long leg boundary. Meanwhile, Matthews takes control from the other end, smashing the ball for another four runs to sweeper cover. It's an impressive start to the over by the batters.

 

19:47 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Yastika Departs

Yastika mistimes her shot to mid-on, and Kiran Navgire takes a comfortable catch. It's a poor shot selection from Yastika, and UPW gets their first wicket. Anjali Sarvani gets the crucial breakthrough, dismissing Yastika for 21 runs, which included four boundaries.

19:38 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Head coach Jon Lewis on UP Warriorz on young Indian players

"There's two parts to my job here - one is to win games of cricket and the other is to develop cricketers. The fact that we were in a position where we're able to put in a 16-year-old legspinner and a 18-year-old fast bowler out into her first game I think should be really celebrated and that's what this competition is all about. This competition is about growing young Indian cricketers and giving them the experience and exposure."

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Nat Sciver-Brunt Ahead Of Eliminator

"After the five wins everyone was worried that people weren't going to get a bat before we got to the knockout games of the tournament.

And we've got the bad loss out of the way from yesterday."

However, anticipate them to deploy a complete and robust XI, featuring the return of Devika Vaidya and Grace Harris, for the upcoming knockouts.

17:50 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: Can MI Bounce Back?

For most of the competition, MI has relied on a robust XI, comprising a well-balanced blend of seasoned and untested players, except when Pooja Vastrakar's injury arose. While Chloe Tryon could be a plausible addition, providing an extra left-arm spin alternative for the conditions and extending the batting lineup, MI is likely to have faith in their victorious team.

17:25 IST

MI vs UP-W LIVE: What to expect

The first innings' average score at DY Patil significantly decreased during the tournament's second leg.
