Bizarre record for Mizoram women’s T20 team

In a bizarre development in a cricket match, Mizoram women’s team was all out for just nine runs against Madhya Pradesh in the ongoing senior Women T20 league at the Palmyra Cricket Ground in Tamil Nadu last week.

As many as nine players from the Mizoram side were out without troubling the scorers last Thursday.

Of a possible 40 overs, the match just lasted for 14.5 overs. Madhya Pradesh did not have to break a sweat chasing the target of 10 runs as half of the runs were gifted to them via wides.

Tarang Jha of Madhya Pradesh had a day to remember as she picked up four wickets. More importantly, she bowled 23 dot deliveries in her four overs. It was due to her efforts Mizoram were reduced to two for five in five overs.

Madhya Pradesh just needed six deliveries to chase the target of 10 runs.

Earlier this year, it was China that recorded the lowest score in Women’s T20 when UAE bowled them out for just 14 runs.
