Shillong, Feb 9: The Meghalaya Cricket Association named a 15-member squad that will represent the state in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy, India’s domestic one day cricket tournament.

The squad is exactly the same as that which played for Meghalaya in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20 tourney, except for the inclusion of Shaisngi Lyngdoh and Riboklang Hynniewta in place of Anish Charak and Shellingstar Thabah.
