On Friday, the Nagaland Under-19 women's cricket team were all out for just two runs in 17 overs against Kerala in the ongoing BCCI Women's Under-19 One-Day League and Knockout Tournament at the JKC college ground, Guntur. It was Kerala's skipper and bowler who bagged four wickets without conceding any run, as media reports suggest.
"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".
The Nagaland women's Under-19 cricket team posted one of the most incredible scorecards in cricket as they scored just two runs - one by the opening batsman Menka and another in the form of a wide -as they effectively went from two for zero to two all out in 11.4 overs. Her 1, from 18 balls, seems nearly Bradmanesque since the other run came off a wide.
Kerala coach Suman Sharma hailed her girls for their effort. We have been playing good cricket but today girls were exceptional.
Nine of the Nagaland team were out for ducks against Kerala in a tournament accredited by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Kerala team coach Suman Sharma told Mirror, "We won because of our disciplined bowling plan and flawless fielding". Kerala took less than two minutes and a ball to win the low-scoring match. Kerala finally got off the mark in the tournament but still remain fifth in the Super League Group B, now level with Delhi on points but behind on net run-rate.
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. Nagaland won the toss and opted to bat first.
Tahmeed was among four U-19 Nagaland players to be named in the East Zone probables' list in 2016.
