Mumbai Indians (MI) have continued their winning streak as they registered a dominating 8-wicket win over UP Warriroz at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai on the 12th of March. However, during a peak moment of the chase, an amusing incident occurred that left everyone in utter shock. Actually, MI skipper Harmanpreet Kaur survived a close call of being bowled as the bails lit up but didn’t fall.
In the 11th over of Mumbai Indians’ innings, Anjali Sarvani, the pacer, bowled a slower one down leg-side that grazed the stump and lit up the bail. The bail moved from its groove, but it did not fall, which resulted in Harmanpreet Kaur getting a lifeline to survive at the crease. UP Warriorz captain Alyssa Healy started celebrating behind the stumps but soon realized that her counterpart had survived by the narrowest of margins.

During this incident, Harmanpreet was on 7, and she had Nat Sciver-Brunt accompanying her at the crease. Harmanpreet Kaur then went on to play a match-winning knock of unbeaten 53 runs off 33 balls, hitting nine boundaries and a six, leading her side to the victory.
This is also the fourth consecutive victory of Mumbai Indians, making them the table toppers. They are inching closer to the later stages of the tournament. This has been possible due to the constant performance by every department of the team.
