Nagaland U-19 girls all out for 2 runs


Surendran somehow missed out on a wicket in her three overs as the other four bowlers picked up two, four, one and one each on top of two run outs - the second of which was a diamond duck.

Only one player troubled the scorers, notching 1 before being dismissed, with the only other run coming from a wide in the 17 overs bowled. Nagaland's opener Menka was the only batter to get off the mark. It was Kerala's Aleena Surendran who broke the pattern. The Nagaland Cricket Association (NCA) has said the result was disappointing but their girls needed support.

Either way, a comical error of mistakes by the Nagaland batswomen has surely landed them in one of the most weird matches which has been scripted in cricket history.

"We had to start from scratch because all the girls are completely raw". "Limited infrastructure, lack of facilities, absence of human resource in coaching and training and dearth of funds are some of the challenges we have been facing and the NCA has been hoping for assistance from the BCCI for several years". This is not the first time that this tournament is witnessing a low scoring match.

Editorial team of CricketCountry. Nagaland won the toss and opted to bat first. "While the huge defeat is definitely a disappointment, our girls need encouragement and support for better performances in future".

"Without any active cricket in the state, the team performed beyond expectations in their first-ever tournament defeating Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Meghalaya and Manipur while losing to Bihar by four wickets, becoming the only team from the Northeast to qualify for the super league", Jamir said.

Tahmeed was among four U-19 Nagaland players to be named in the East Zone probables' list in 2016.

"In 2017 the NCA has already hosted a Cooch Behar trophy match and is alloted to host four U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy matches in Dec 2017, in which Nagaland U-16 boys team is also participating".
