Women’s U-19 cricket: Arunachal win against Meghalaya

Shillong, Oct 3: Good bowling from Meghalaya was not enough to prevent defeat against Arunachal today in the Women’s U-19 One Day Trophy.

The Plate Group match in Bhubaneshwar saw Meghalaya win the toss and chose to bat first but they were only able to put up 65 runs on the board. Arunachal were a bit shaky in the chase but were able to cross the line with four wickets in hand.

Neelam Roy was the only batter who got into double figures for Meghalaya today but she was out for 12. The team managed to occupy the crease for a long time, but found it difficult to get the ball away for runs and they were all out for 65 in 38.2 overs.

Great bowling by Sistilin Ryntathiang (3/16) saw Arunachal lose their opening three wickets for just 21. Icyful Mary Lyngkhoi (1/2), Marme M Sangma (1/6) and Mansi Anand (1/17) also bagged a wicket each, but it was Megha Sharma’s unbeaten 31 that took Arunachal to victory.

After two washouts and two defeats, Meghalaya will play their last match against Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow.
