Nagaland won the toss and chose to bat, but were dismissed for 128 in 42.2 overs.

In the chase the dismissal of Razia Ahmed for 10 led to a batting collapse, with Dutta the only one able to provide resistance with an innings of 30 and Meghalaya were all out for 65 in 30.5 overs.
Meghalaya will next face Arunachal Pradesh on 23rd March in Bhubaneshwar.
