SHILLONG, April 5: West Khasi Hills continued to be in top form as they demolished South Garo Hills by nine wickets in the final of the Meghalaya Cricket Association Women’s U-23 Inter-District Cricket Tournament at Nongstoin on Tuesday.
Batted after losing the coin toss, SGH was all out for 67 in 20.3 overs, which WKH chased for a lone batter loss in 12 overs.
Evanrilin S Syiem put in a game-winning performance with the ball, claiming five wickets for nine runs from 3.3 overs, while Ridahun Nongsiej (2/17) and Sara Dafica Kharbani (2/23) won two each. Smillin N Sangma was the only hitter to enter double digits, having hit 13.
In the chase, Sildamicresha Marbaniang had another solid run, hitting 38 of 39 unbeaten balls to lead his side to victory by nine wickets. Syiem was deservedly named Player of the Match, while Marbaniang finished with the most points in the competition – 213.
