WPL 2023: Kate Cross impressed by ‘find of the tournament’ Saika Ishaque | Cricket News

Mumbai Indian Left Arm Spinner Saika Ishaque currently leads the list of Women’s Premier League (WPL) wicket-takers with nine wickets in his kitty, and he left England pacer Kate Cross powerfully impressed.
“She got a head start on Hayley Matthews, her teammate. She plays from stump to stump, and she changes the angles she plays from. She played with the cap and I don’t think she wants the remove,” Kate was quoted as saying by Sports18 and JioCinema.

Saika took the opportunity that WPL gave players, especially those who are not capped, to show off their skills.
In Thursday’s game between MI and Delhi Capitals, Saika knocked out Shafali Verma, Meg Lanning and Jemimah Rodrigues in a game-changing spell to lay the groundwork for an eight-wicket win for the Mumbai Indians.

“She’s been a real find for this tournament and it’s great for her (captain Harmanpreet Kaur) to have players like that to throw the ball to her because she can find the breakthrough and T20 cricket is all about taking wickets “, said Kate.
Kate also felt that Mumbai, the only unbeaten team in the competition, were now strong contenders for the title.

“Mumbai were absolutely great. They looked complete in all departments. They lost a few catches early on and that’s the only thing you can say about tonight that they weren’t perfect. They’ve been a brilliant team to watch. Who’ll catch them? I’m not too sure.”
