Meghalaya suffered an eight-wicket defeat to fellow North East side Mizoram in the Senior Women’s T20 Trophy in Bangalore today.
After being put into bat first after Mizoram won the toss, Meghalaya were dismissed for 91 in 18 overs despite a solid 45-run partnership for the third wicket by guest player Sejal Raut and Daiaka Warjri. Raut top-scored with 38 off 39 balls, while Warjri hit 13 from 24 in a support role.
However, the two were dismissed within the space of an over as Meghalaya went from 62/2 to 91 all out.
In the second innings, Mizoram lost two wickets but chased down the target in only 16.3 overs. Debasmita Dutta bagged 1/10 and Ajima Sangma 1/17 with the ball for Meghalaya.
The last and final match of Meghalaya’s will be on Saturday against Uttar Pradesh.
