It was a rain-marred day at Una, with as many as four out of scheduled nine matches were abandoned in the ongoing Senior Women’s One-day Trophy on Friday (March 6). Apart from washed-out games, Delhi, Mumbai, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh registered victories over Haryana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand and Saurashtra respectively.

The match between Mumbai and Kerala turned out to be the most interesting one of the day. Batting first Kerala rode on Jincy George's 67 before S Thakor of Mumbai took four wickets to help bundle Kerala out for 166. In reply, Mumbai got off to a flier, courtesy Esha Oza, who blitzed her way to 58 off 49 balls, before Aneena Matthews struck. That though was the only hiccup as H V Borwankar (35*) and skipper Shweta Haranhalli (29*) saw of the remaining runs with nine overs to spare.

In another rain-shortened game in Surat, Madhya Pradesh chased down a tricky target of 111 with six wickets in hand. The match was reduced to 30 overs-a-side and Saurashtra managed to breach the 100-run mark on the back of K Anovadia's gritty knock of 35 before Priti Yadav took three wickets to keep Saurashtra to 110 for the loss of seven wickets.

In riposte, Madhya Pradesh got to a worst possible start as they lost both their openers for a duck. No.4 batter Salonee Dangore though held one end up and scored a match-winning unbeaten 52 to take her team over the line with 19 balls to spare.  This win for Madhya Pradesh was their seventh win and they firmly sit on top of the points table with 28 points.
