As Mumbai Indian's played their final league phase match in the Women's Premier League (WPL) this season ahead of the knockouts phase, team owner Nita M. Ambani was in Delhi to support the team wherein she also spoke about the importance of a platform like the WPL for sportswomen in India.

Nita Ambani hailed the WPL as a great opportunity for young girls to rub shoulders with the best players in the world. She said, “What a platform for our girls to perform. These girls are getting to play with the best in the world and it is such a heart-warming feeling.” 

She made a special mention for Sajeevan Sajana, one of the team’s breakout stars this year, and said, “I saw Sajana getting the award. She is a graduate in political science, her father is an autorickshaw driver and she chose to play cricket. I hope this sets an example for parents to encourage their girls choose what profession they wish. Not only for cricket, WPL is an example for girls in all kinds of sports.”

Nita Ambani said that the ethos of One Family and the positive atmosphere were key to MI’s success. “I have been in cricket since 2010 and watching these girls play is one of my most heart-warming experiences. MI is known to be a family and all I tell them is go out, do your best and enjoy yourself.” Mrs Ambani also credited MI’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur as well as the team’s support staff led by Head Coach Charlotte Edwards along with Mentor and Bowling coach Jhulan Goswami for the team’s success.
