Mumbai: Mumbai Indians beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by nine wickets in their Women’s Premier League match here on Monday.

Chasing 156, MI reached their target with 34 balls to spare.

Opting to bat after winning the toss, RCB were off to a brisk start with the opening duo of skipper Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine adding 39 runs in 4.2 overs, when the latter was dismissed by Saika Ishaque for an 11-ball 16.

Disha Kasat failed to open her account, before Mandhana was sent back by Hayley Matthews for a 17-ball 23, the RCB captain yet again falling after getting a start.
