She also hailed the impact of the tournament that has seen some of the best players in the world in action. “Just look at the atmosphere here. It looks like a festival of cricket. I think MLC is a momentous step in the development of cricket in this region. Sport can be a bedrock of society and especially in the U.S. it’s a big part of the culture. So, for us to join hands with MLC and play our role in the growth and development of cricket in this region is fantastic. I’m enjoying every moment of it.”

Mumbai Indians is now a truly global franchise with a presence across two genders, three continents, four countries, and five leagues. Speaking about the vision behind the same, Mrs. Ambani said, “It’s been wonderful to see the growth of cricket around the world and especially MI going to the UAE, South Africa, and now here in the US. We also have a women’s team which I am very, very proud of. It was so wonderful to see these young girls coming from such diverse backgrounds coming and playing together as a team. It was very heart-warming.”

Mrs. Ambani also hoped that the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) will be a game-changer. “I’m a big supporter of girls in sports and I hope we can take it forward in every sport possible,” she said.
Mrs. Ambani also spoke about MI’s unique #OneFamily concept and what it signifies. “We believe that we are a family at MI and that is our ethos. It comprises not just the players and support staff but also all our fans who have contributed so much to making MI a global brand. I think one of the most important initiatives for us is Education and Sports For All. The initiative has supported 22 million children from India who come from underprivileged backgrounds. So we are very proud to call all of them One Family, MI family.”

Mrs. Ambani also spoke about how Mumbai Indians have been a nursery of talent over the years. “At Mumbai Indians, we pride ourselves on discovering and nurturing young talent – Hardik (Pandya), (Jasprit) Bumrah. We hope to do this not just in India but around the world.”
MI New York chased down a total of 184 in just 16 overs in the final to win by six wickets with captain Nicholas Pooran leading from the front with an unbeaten hundred.
