Shillong, Mar 23: Meghalaya lost to Arunachal Pradesh by five wickets in their third match of the U-23 Women’s One-Day League in Bhubaneshwar today.
After winning the toss Meghalaya opted to bat first and started slowly. Razia Ahmed made 24 and captain Debasmita Dutta 11, but a middle order collapse would have given Arunachal hopes of bowling out their opponents for less than 100. However, Banrisha Wahlang chipped in with 20 after coming in at number 10 and Meghalaya finished on 110/9 in their 50 overs.
Deiphi Lyngdoh Mawnai then claimed two wickets (2/20) for Meghalaya, while Neelam Roy bagged 1/19. Two run outs were also effected by Dutta and Luiza Tamang, but Arunachal reached the target in 45.2 overs.
Meghalaya will next take on Bihar tomorrow.
