Shillong, Apr 5: West Khasi Hills District Cricket Association were victorious in the final of the Meghalaya Cricket Association’s Inter District U-19 Girls Cricket Tournament 2021, winning the title match by 28 runs in Nongstoin today.

WKH were able to get the better of Tura District Cricket Association, despite a fine 86 by player-of-the-tournament Sanchisa M Sangma.

Batting first after winning the toss, WKH were led by a 51 from Dubleen D Nengnong to post 136/3 in 20 overs. Two of the three wickets to fall were taken by Sanchisa Sangma (2/28), with the other taken by Awesa G Momin (1/22).

In reply, Sanchisa was responsible for nearly 80 percent of Tura’s runs as the eventual runners-up managed 108/2. Her innings of 86 is the third time in consecutive matches that Sanchisa has hit a fifty or more. WKH’s bowlers were very economical and were thus able to keep Tura to below the required run rate.
