Uttar Pradesh vs Himachal: Muskan Malik's half-century guides Uttar Pradesh a convincing win
Having won the toss, Himachal chose to field first. Soon they realised that their decision was not fruitful as Uttar Pradesh openers Muskan Malik and Shobha Devi gave a flying start to the team. Himachal got the first breakthrough when Shobha Devi was dismissed by Nancy Sharma's throw. Muskan, along with captain Neetu Gaur steadied the ship and added 85 runs before both the batters got dismissed in the last over. Their innings ended up scoring 115 at the end of the 20 overs.
Chasing 116, Himachal lost their opener S M Singh for 19. Middle orders failed miserably as they couldn't resurrect the innings. Only 4 batters were able to reach the double-digit. Falak Naz, Sonam Yadav and Anjali Singh bagged 2 wickets each while Juhi Pandey picked up 1. Their economical spell and fall of wickets at regular interval ended Himachal's innings within 79.
