“We would have bowled first, but happy to bat first. There’s no easy contest, there are no weak links in any side. It’s great to see the competition getting stronger and stronger. We just spoke about how we can become better, need to be smarter in our decision-making,” said UP Warriorz’ captain UP Warriorz captain Alyssa Healy after the toss.
