Shillong, Feb 8: A tidy bowling performance saw Nagaland defeat Meghalaya by 65 runs in their U-23 Col CK Nayudu Trophy match in Golaghat, Assam, today.
Resuming on 140/5 and leading by 131 over Meghalaya in their second innings, Nagaland were ultimately dismissed for 206, which set Meghalaya a target of 198 to win but they were bowled out for 132.
Adarsh Joshi (4/43) scalped four wickets for Meghalaya while Kishan Lyngdoh took 1/7 today.
In the chase Lyngdoh hit six fours in his rapid innings of 25 off 15 deliveries but his proved to be the highest score as the Meghalaya batsmen could not build big enough partnerships to get them over the line.
Meanwhile, Meghalaya’s U-23 Women’s One-Day Trophy match against Bihar was abandoned midway through due to rain.
Bihar had made 149/7 in a reduced 49 overs with four run outs and wickets for Riticia Nongbet (1/21), Deiphibapynshngain L Mawnai (1/23) and Sandria Momin (1/33). Meghalaya were on 28/2 when rain spoiled the match. Each team thus received two points each.
