On day five of the Women’s Senior One Day Trophy, two teams were dismissed for under fifty. While Nagaland were bowled out for 27, Meghalaya were knocked over for 49 by Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka respectively. Madhya Pradesh won their Group D clash in Indore, thanks mainly to Priti Yadav’s five-wicket haul. Pooja Vastrakar returned three wickets and a quickfire 26 off just 12 balls. Rameshwari Gayakwad starred for Karnataka with four wicket for 11.
Kerala beat Mumbai by 47 runs with Jincy George scoring an unbeaten 107 for the former. Minnu Mani also scored 56 for them and then picked up two wickets for 29 runs. Vrushali Bhagat was the lone half-centurion for Mumbai.
SM Singh hit a massive 116 as Himachal pipped Delhi by ten runs. Renuka Singh returned with four wickets for 39 runs, which kept Delhi to 198 for eight, despite Neha Chillar’s 57. In Indore, Baroda also posted over 200 in their innings, which proved 64 too many for Punjab. While Amrita Joseph hit an unbeaten 76 for Baroda, Tanvir Shaikh and J Mohite shared seven wickets between them.
