Mumbai women’s team beat minnows Nagaland in a bizarre women’s cricket match in the n the ongoing Senior One-Day Trophy. The veteran team bowled out Nagaland for just 17 runs and chased down the target in just four balls. The men’s team won the Vijay Hazare trophy recently and now the women’s team has played the most bizarre cricket match ever.
In a match played between Mumbai and Nagaland women at Indore’s Holkar stadium, it was Mumbai skipper and medium-pacer Sayali Satghare (7/5 in 8.4 overs), who wreaked havoc with the ball against Nagaland. The latter decided to bat first after winning the toss and the decision backfired badly. The Nagaland batting line-up was bowled out for 17, with the Mumbai skipper picking up four wickets and also bowling four maidens. The first batsmen of the Nagaland team were out for ducks.
Mumbai Win Bizarre Women’s Cricket Match
In reply, Mumbai women chased down the target in just four balls and ended one of the most bizarre cricket matches ever played. Openers Esha Oza and Vrushali Bhagat then knocked off the target in just four balls, smashing three boundaries and a six in the process.
The Mumbai men’s team won the Vijay Hazare Trophy under the leadership of Prithvi Shaw a few days back. He scored four centuries in the tournament with the best of 227 against Pondicherry. Before the domestic tournament, Shaw had a forgetful tour to Australia and was benched for the subsequent England series.
After a title-winning season for Mumbai, Prithvi Shaw opened up on the hard work that he put in the meantime. He hit 105 fours and 25 sixes in the course of scoring these runs for Mumbai. He ended the season with 827 runs, the most by any player in a single season in the tournament’s history.
Shaw had a forgetful tour to Australia where his technique was exposed badly by Australian pacers Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc. A high backlift and the bat coming down at an angle from gully, made Shaw a candidate for bowled and leg before to deliveries coming in.
