Uttar Pradesh had batted first and posted 117 for eight in their 20 overs. Anjali Singh had a 39 to show as the highest score in the innings, as Challa’s bowling had hardly let anyone off the hook. But Andhra’s batting fell way short to lose the contest by 19 runs.
In another match in Mulapadu, Vidarbha upstaged Karnataka by three wickets. Thanks to Komal Zanzad’s three for 16, the latter were bundled out for 70.
