The main lesson from the first WPL, according to MI's Humaira Kazi, is to "back your strength in any circumstance."

Uncapped players have the perfect opportunity to showcase their talents thanks to the inaugural Women’s Premier League (WPL). As a member of the eventual winner Mumbai Indians, Humaira Kazi was one among the cricketers who used the enormous stage to showcase her prowess.

Recently, Humaira told up about the lessons she learned from the first tournament and the experience of sharing a changing room with people like Harmanpreet Kaur, Hayley Matthews, and Nat Sciver-Brunt.

When recently questioned by MI about her major takeaways from the competition, Humaira mentioned Sciver-Brunt’s performance in the knockout rounds, claiming that the England cricketer showed her how to trust in oneself under pressure. She also praised Sciver-Brunt for her game-winning effort against Delhi Capitals in the championship game.

“I believe that the most important lesson I’ve personally learnt from players like Nat and Amelia is to always stand by your strengths. In the Eliminator, for example, you could see Nat perform and score 31 balls for 72 runs, and in the final, she scored 50 balls for 51 runs. In the end, the circumstances were different, but she supported herself still. She was aware that only she was capable of moving the squad forward. Therefore, I’ve personally realized that you must support oneself in every circumstance, Humaira stated.

“And I think for me, learning from this WPL is very important going forward in the domestic season or the camp that I’m going to be part of,” the 29-year-old continued.

Notably, Mumbai Indians paid INR 10 lakh to sign Humaira. Only eight runs were scored by the right-handed batter in his three games. But in the group game, she excelled in the fielding department against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
