The players did not have to go disappointed as Mumbai Indians Women defeated DC Women to lift the trophy in the inaugural edition of the tournament. While Nat Sciver-Brunt played a match-winning knock of 60* (55), Hayley Matthews (3/5) starred with the ball in hand.
"It was very special. Glad I was able to stick it out when the pressure was on. I was trying to get quite tough and Harman and Melie took the pressure off me. I knew if I stayed till the end we'd get through. We gave away too many in the final 3-4 overs, but it made the game interesting. (Winning the trophy) It means everything, coming together with a special group of girls with the Mumbai Indians, really special moment," said Nat Sciver post the win.
