Cricket has seen some bizarre score lines in the past. Who can forget Mali women’s team being bowled out on 6 byRwanda in a T20I in 2019? Or, to take a more familiar example, the Indian men’s team putting only 36 in the second innings of the Test against Australian December 2020? On Wednesday, the Women’s Senior One Day Trophy inIndia saw another one of those incredible scorecards in the match between Mumbai and Nagaland.
After opting to bat, Nagaland could score only 17 runs in as many overs (17.4). The highest scorer for the side was Sariba, who scored 9. Mumbai’s captain Sayali Satghare returned with figures of 7/5 in 8.4 overs! In return, all it took were four deliveries for Mumbai to seal the game. Three fours, one six, and a no-ball secured Mumbai a victory with a whopping 296 deliveries remaining in the innings.
This was Mumbai’s first win of the tournament in their second match, as the side stands at fifth in their group. The Women’s Senior One Day trophy kick started on March 11 and was a restart to women’s domestic cricket in the country following the COVID-19 break. Earlier, the India women’s international team also returned to the field for the first time in a year with a home series against South Africa earlier this month.
