Gujarat Giants did make early inroads, dismissing openers Yastika Bhatia and Hayley Matthews cheaply. But there was never any real scoreboard pressure as Sciver-Brunt and Kaur steadied the innings with a 30-run partnership. Once Sciver-Brunt departed caught and bowled by Kanwar Kerr joined Kaur to stitch together a match-winning knock of 66-run stand for the 4th wicket.
