Guntur: The BCCI's U-19 women's one-day super league match between Kerala and Nagaland on Friday ended in farce as the Northeastern state was shot out for just two runs with as many as nine batters getting out for duck.
Kerala's Minnu Mani bowled four maiden overs and scalped four while P. Sourabhya sent down six maiden overs and took two wickets.
"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".
Nagaland batted for 17 overs but only managed two runs with one of them coming off a wide. 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 coach Suman Sharma hailed her girls for their great effort.
Record heat cooks Arizona for Thanksgiving Day
As for Thanksgiving Day itself, the west San Fernando Valley will probably be the hottest area in the L.A. region, Sirard said. Forecasters said heat records could also be set today in downtown Los Angeles, Burbank, Lancaster and Palmdale.
"The Nagaland Cricket Association was struggling to put a team together because we didn't have any academy for girls". Only one batter, Menka, got off the mark with a single (18 balls). Bihar and Nagaland are the only two sides to remain winless in either group.
Kerala won the 50-over match by 10 wickets off the first delivery.
Despite the win, Kerala failed to qualify for the last-four stage, as they could win just two of five games they played. In 2016 four U19 Nagaland players - Sedezalie, Nagaho Chishi, Puchu Dev and Tahmeed played for the combined team of BCCI and Tahmeed was even listed in the East Zone probables list, : it stated.
However, limited infrastructure, lack of facilities, absence of human resource in coaching and training and lack of funds are some of the challenges faced by the association, Jamir stated in the statement.
Earlier this month, an astounding 136 wide balls were bowled in a match of the same tournament between Nagaland and Manipur in Dhanbad.
