Sajana’s agility was further evident as she also dismissed Chamari Athapaththu and Uma Chetry, contributing significantly to MI’s defensive efforts. Athapaththu fell early in the fourth over, while Chetry succumbed to Saika Ishaque’s crafty slower delivery.

Despite a shaky start for Mumbai Indians, with both openers departing early, the partnership between Nat Sciver-Brunt and Harmanpreet Kaur steadied the ship. Together, they amassed 59 crucial runs before Kaur’s departure for 33, courtesy of Saima Thakor’s bowling.

Sciver-Brunt’s near half-century, falling just five runs short, proved pivotal in MI’s resurgence. Their total of 118/9 proved challenging for UP Warriorz to chase down, as they faltered in their response.

The match was a testament to Sajeevan Sajana’s exceptional fielding skills, which played a significant role in Mumbai Indians’ victory. Her agile movements and stunning catches not only thrilled the audience but also inspired her teammates, reinforcing her status as a key player in the WPL arena.

With such remarkable performances, Sajana continues to cement her reputation as one of the standout players in women’s cricket, adding excitement and flair to every match she participates in. As the WPL 2024 season progresses, fans can expect more dazzling displays from this talented all-rounder.
