Astalakshmi’s 5 wicket haul goes in vain against Odisha

In the Senior Women’s T-20 League played at CAP-Siechem Ground, Pondicherry, the home team lost to Odisha. Odisha won the toss and chose to bat first. With a strong opening partnership of 68 runs between Madhuri Meheta (28 off 30 balls) and Madhusmita Behera (38 off 41 balls), the no.3 batter Pragyan Mohanty (25 off 25 balls) and the no.6 Reemalaxmi Ekka (20 not out) took the score to 131 for 8 in 20 overs. Astalakshmi took 5 for 24 off 4 overs.

In the chase, the free fall of wickets led to the collapse of Puducherry. With only Lathika Kumari (15) and Sandhya Mounika (14) reaching the double figures, Puducherry was all out for 67 off 19.04 overs. For Odichsa, Reemalaxmi Ekka took 3 for 7 and Sushree Dibyadarshini took 2 for 4.
