“Today’s match is about celebrating women in sports. I wanted to highlight that girls have the right to education and sports. I hope all these girls and those watching TV dare to chase their dreams and achieve whatever they want. That is why we have called on all of them today to feel inspired and take great courage to come back home.”

“There could be a Jhulan or a Harmanpreet here, not just cricket but a superstar from any sport in the future. They can achieve on the global stage and bring accolades for India.”

Notably, the MI men also displayed a strong spirit for the initiative as they donned the MI Women’s WPL jerseys. For the toss, Mumbai Indians women’s team captain Harmanpreet Kaur also walked out along with the men’s team’s stand-in captain Suryakumar Yadav.
