Shillong, Oct 23: Meghalaya lost their last Group A match in the Senior Women’s T20 Trophy in Bangalore today by 62 runs to Uttar Pradesh.
Batting first after winning the toss, UP struck 146/3 to which Meghalaya responded with 84/9 in their allotted 20 overs.
One wicket each was claimed by Rubi Chettri (1/22), Debasmita Dutta (1/27) and Daiaka Warjri (1/32) but these were not enough to slow down a rampant Uttar Pradesh.
In the chase, guest player Anita Lodhi struck four fours in a 15-ball innings of 21 and there were other contributions of 19 by Dutta, 11 by Vaincy Chaudhary and 10 by Sejal Raut (the other two guest players) but UP kept chipping away with wickets and Meghalaya were not able to get close to the imposing target.
Meghalaya thus ended the tournament with one victory – against Nagaland – and five defeats.
