Pondicherry Women Win Comfortably against Sikkim

Women’s Senior One Day Trophy 2019-20 : Pondicherry Vs Sikkim (Siechem Stadium)

Puducherry, 25 Feb’20:
Pondicherry was off with a good opening partnership of 73 runs between B.S.Tamore and Latika Kumari, which was followed by, though not a sound one, a mediocre middle order support took the team to post 196 for 8 off 50 overs against Sikkim in the Womens Sr. One Day Trophy match played at Siechem Stadium, Puducherry.

Put in to bat first, Pondicherry found the going smooth till the fall of first wicket when B.S.Tamore was out for 32, the immediate fall of second wicket at the same score took the team to 73 for 2 as no.3 Karuna Jain was dismissed for naught. However, with valuable contribution from Latika Kumari (42), Radhi (31), Sandhya Mounika (25) and Nandhini (25), Pondicherry posted 196 for 8 off 50 overs as nothing more could be expected with self-inflicted damage in the form of three run outs.

Jaya strikes early
When Sikkim started their reply, Jaya struck severe blows by dismissing the top four batswomen and demolished the morale of the opponent, as Sikkim could not recover from the score of 22 for 4. With the top order being polished off, Sikkim found it very tough to even survive the full quota of 50 overs and was eventually all out for 73 off 31.3 overs. Pondicherry bowler Jaya took 4 for 17 to return with figures of 8-3-17-4, while Radhi took two wickets. Gaining 4 points with this win, Pondicherry remains on top of the table with 12 points.
