East Garo Hills overcame a first innings deficit to record a spectacular six-wicket victory over Tura District Cricket Association B in the Zone 2 match of the Meghalaya Cricket Association’s Inter-District U-23 Men’s Cricket Tournament.
TDCA-B won the toss and elected to bat first in Mendipathar, but they were bowled out for 121, with Sengkam Sangma top-scoring with 35. Prakash bagged 3/34 for EGH.
EGH were then themselves dismissed for only 96, with Prakash Prasad making 44 and Rashidul taking 2/45.
TDCA-B thus went into their second innings leading by 25 runs but could only manage 93 all out, with Prakash this time returning figures of 6/37, leaving East Garo a target of 119 for victory. Clever Sangma scored 44 this time to help his side to victory in 43.3 overs.
