Kerala women bowled Nagaland women out for mere two runs sensationally in the ongoing U19 One-Day League in India. The domestic tournament is organised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The fate of women’s cricket doesn’t look good in India as far as the junior level is concerned. However, this could be the fastest chase ever in the history of cricket at any level as Kerala won the game off the first ball of their innings.
Nagaland won the toss and opted to bat first at JKC College ground in Guntur against Kerala. But they were kept under the lid by the bowlers right through as wickets kept on falling after every two overs. The skipper Minnu Mani was the pick of the bowlers for the bowling side as she scalped four wickets without even conceding a run in her four overs. Also, Aleena Surendran was the only bowler to concede runs with as many as 16 maidens were bowled out in 17 overs.
9 ducks for Nagaland
Nagaland women, on the other hand, looked just hapless and no batter could stop the procession. The opener Menka was the only batter to get her name on the board with a solitary run as all others were dismissed for a duck. Also, there was a wide ball bowled by the bowler which added to the total and they could starkingly muster only two runs in a One-Day game.
Kerala, in their reply, were helped in their chase with a wide delivery by Deepika Kaintura after which the opening batter Ansu Raju smashed a boundary to register the biggest win by 10 wickets and 299 balls remaining. The match was finished off only in 17.1 overs and a total of 7 runs were scored for the loss of 10 wickets which should also be the lowest match aggregate ever.
