MI batters crumbles against UPW

MI lost their top five without crossing over into three figures before the 15th over. They were eventually all out for 127 runs. MI then made a good start to their defence, taking three wickets in the first seven overs, including that of the dangerous Alyssa Healy.

The match remains in the balance with Amelia Kerr getting Tahlia McGrath, who had brought the UPW chase on track. Mumbai Indians are the only unbeaten side left in the competition and they have looked the part thus far as well.
