Over 19,000 young girls will fill the Wankhede Stadium to cheer the Rohit Sharma-led side for the match.

The head coach of the MI men’s team Mark Boucher, the MI women’s team’s bowling coach Jhulan Goswami, and Mumbai men’s batting coach Kieron Pollard said that the initiative will inspire girls to take up sports as a profession.

Mark Boucher, in the video posted by MI’s Twitter handle was heard saying,

“Mumbai Indians have been fantastic in creating this initiative and hopefully, it’s going to go out to the rest of the world. The biggest lesson that they will take away from this game as well is that seeing sports and inspiring them to be able to play sport at a professional level one day.”

Meanwhile, Jhulan Goswami added,

“Definitely, it’s going to motivate them and encourage them. In the future, we will see a lot of girls coming into the sport.”

Pollard said,

“I think that’s a fantastic sort of gesture, not only for kids or whatever but for the ladies of this generation. It’s very very instrumental in the development of any kind and, more so, ladies and girls, especially in sports. So, it gives you a different perspective of what you can accomplish as an individual and as a female.”
