Let’s take a look at the highlights from Match 18 of WPL 2024:

1. Beth Mooney registers third consecutive half-century of the season

The Gujarat Titans captain once again led her side from the front as she registered her third consecutive fifty of the season. The southpaw was dropped twice during her knock and made full use of her reprieves playing a magnificent knock of 74* (52) with the help of ten fours and a six. Mooney clobbered five boundaries in the last over bowled by Sophie Ecclestone and propelled her team’s score to 152/8 in their allotted 20 overs.

2. Shabnam Shakil shines with the new ball

The right-arm seamer emerged as the pick of the bowlers for Gujarat as she made a brilliant comeback after being hit for a four off the first delivery by Alyssa Healy and got her out on the third ball. She further got the prized scalp of Chamari Athapaththu (0 off 3) in the same over and later destroyed the stumps of Shweta Sehrawat (8 off 9) to register figures of 3/11 in four overs.
