Watch: Delhi Capitals Meg Lanning stunned by Yastika Bhatia’s mammoth six

Bhatia ended up scoring a 45-ball 57 to kick off the WPL 2024 season for her side, the Mumbai Indians.

Yastika Bhatia was in fine flow in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 season opener. With her side, the Mumbai Indians, chasing a big total of 172, the southpaw showed her skills and struck an impressive fifty. Such was Bhatia’s stroke play that even the opposition captain, Meg Lanning, was in awe of the 23-year-old.

Looking to end the powerplay on a high, Yastika Bhatia dispatched a short of length delivery outside off by Shikha Pandey into the stands. Such was the stroke that Lanning was awe-struck and couldn’t even comprehend what the southpaw had done.

Bhatia went on to score a well-struck 45-ball 57 and ensure that her side crossed the 100-run mark in their chase. The 23-year-old also became the first left-handed player to score a fifty in the WPL, but unfortunately, she couldn’t take her side to victory in the season opener.
