WPL 2023: Gujarat Giants’ skipper Beth Mooney to overlook remainder of Women’s Premier League attributable to harm

2 min read

Australia opener Beth Mooney will miss the rest of the Women’s Premier League attributable to a calf harm that may require as much as six weeks to heal, Cricket Australia mentioned on Thursday.

Mooney, the captain of the Gujarat Giants, suffered the harm within the opening match of the Twenty20 event in India final weekend as she retired harm.

The 29-year-old missed the following two matches and can now journey house for rehabilitation, with South Africa’s Laura Wolvaardt changing her within the Gujarat squad.

Wolvaardt, who was in Pakistan to participate within the Women’s League exhibition matches, has been launched by her workforce Super Women.

“I was really looking forward to the maiden WPL season … but unfortunately injuries are part and parcel of the sport and I am gutted to be missing the remainder of the season,” Mooney mentioned in an announcement.

“I will be keeping a close eye on the team’s performance from afar and will be rooting for them every single day,” she mentioned about Gujarat, who’re fourth within the five-team league after one win and two losses.

“Though I will be away from the field of play for the rest of the season, I am looking forward to coming back stronger, fitter and I will definitely be hungrier next season.”

Mooney top-scored for champions Australia within the closing of the T20 World Cup in opposition to South Africa final month.

She was one in all three Australians who have been named captains of their WPL groups alongside Alyssa Healy at UP Warriorz and Meg Lanning at Delhi Capitals.
