Nagaland girls find it 'two' tough

The BCCI's U-19 women's one-day super league match between Kerala and Nagaland ended in a farce on Friday as the North-Eastern state was shot out for just two runs.

Electing to bat after winning the toss, Nagaland batswomen struggled for 17 overs before getting bowled out. Nine batters were out for duck while opener Menka scored one run (off 18 balls) from the only scoring shot of the innings in the Group B match at JKC college ground here. The other run was a wide.

Kerala needed just one legal delivery to win the match. Nagaland's Deepika Kaintura bowled a wide first up and then, off the first legal ball, Kerala opener Ansu S Raju scored a boundary to win the match by 10 wickets. Kerala reached 5 for no loss in 0.1 overs.

The North-Eastern teams were included in BCCI-accredited tournaments from this season as per the Lodha Committee recommendations.

Earlier this month, an astounding 136 wide balls were bowled in a match   between Nagaland and Manipur in Dhanbad. The match, a part of the inaugural NE-Bihar U-19 one-day competition, saw Manipur bowling 94 wide balls and Nagaland 42.
