Losing captain Smriti Mandhana: It was good to take the match to the final over but we were 10 runs short. Wicket was really slow but 145-150 would have been a good total but in T20 cricket anything can be defended and anything can be defended. I have told harman that I am not playing PS 4 with her for 7 days because you picked up the catch. Suzie helped me a lot in taking the decisions.

Well done to all the women who played in the historic exhibition match at the Wankhede stadium. Hope this is a foundation stone for the women's IPL in the future.

What was that shot, Veda?

Veda tries to scoop arguably the best fast bowler to grace the sport, Jhulan Goswami and ends up getting bowled. That was not needed at all.
