Initially, the Mumbai Indians faced setbacks, with opener Yastika Bhatia dismissed by Kathryn Bryce’s well-executed full-length delivery in just the third over. The troubles persisted as Hayley Matthews also departed in the fourth over without leaving a significant mark.

With two crucial wickets down, Mumbai’s hopes relied on captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Nat Sciver-Brunt to stabilize the innings. However, the Gujarat team’s lackluster fielding, bordering on comedic, added to Mumbai’s woes.

In the fifth over, on the penultimate delivery, Sciver-Brunt skillfully drove a length delivery from Kat Bryce towards mid-wicket, securing a single. Sneh Rana’s swift fielding resulted in a direct hit, but the subsequent throw towards backward point allowed Mumbai to sneak an extra run.

In the midst of confusion, Dayalan Hemalatha from backward point threw the ball without a specific recipient but managed to avoid conceding additional runs. The chaos continued as an overthrow towards Giants’ keeper Beth Mooney went uncollected, granting the Harman-Nat duo an additional run, totaling three runs from the exchange.

The unfolding events left the Gujarat Giants astonished, while the Mumbai dugout erupted in amusement at the comical scenes on the field. Social media buzzed with laughter as the Twitterverse shared the hilarious moment from the match.
