Shillong, Nov 25: Meghalaya suffered a 414-run defeat at the hands of Uttarakhand in a U-23 Col CK Nayudu Trophy plate group match in Dehradun today.
Faced with an almost impossible task to eke out a draw on the final day, the match was wrapped up within a couple of overs just after the start of play.
Meghalaya resumed their second innings on 85/7 and lost two batsmen off the first two deliveries. Akash Kumar and Lokesh Turaha added a further 10 runs, but there was not much the tail-enders could do and Meghalaya were bowled out for 95.
