WPL 2023: Fans go gaga as UP Warriorz Kiran Navgire writes ‘MSD 07’ on her bat


UP Warriorz (UPW) registered a thrilling win over Gujarat Giants (GG) in match no. 3 of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2023 at DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on Sunday (March 5). Warriorz defeated the Giants by three wickets and a ball to spare.

Grace Harris and Kiran Navgire shined for UPW in their victory, smashing a half-century each for their team. While Harris added a quick fire 59 off 26 balls, Kiran scored a brilliant 53 off 43 deliveries comprising five fours and two sixes. Apart from the superb inning of the duo, what caught the attention of viewers was the bat that Kiran used in the match.

The sponsorless willow used by Kiran had handwritten ‘MSD 07’ on it, which made fans go gaga over the fact that the India star adores their favourite legendary, MS Dhoni. However, many felt heartbroken to see Kiran have no bat sponsor and demanded on social media to get a logo of some company on her bat.

The Maharashtra cricketer’s teammates from the UPW also demanded to sponsor the former’s bat and posted #getkiranabatsponsor on their social media handles.

Sophie Ecclestone took to Twitter to appreciate both Harris and Kiran for their sensational knocks and wrote: “Grace. Harris. Loved getting out there for the first time with the @UPWarriorz #uttardega #getkiranabatsponsor”

Meanwhile, Harris also shared a story on Instagram to celebrate the team’s victory and wrote: “It was all good fun! #UPwarriors #uttadegaithink #getkiranabatsponsor”

On that note, let’s have a look at how fans reacted to the same on Twitter:
