Himachal’s 1st wicket fell in the second over only as Harleen Deol departed on a duck and for a moment it seemed that it was not going to be an easy chase for them. But the duo of Nikita Chauhan and Neena Chaudhary built a match-winning partnership. Chaudhary played the second fiddle, giving the strike to Chauhan who was scoring with ease. She played a wonderful knock of 86 runs in 57 balls while Chaudhary scored 28 off 29. Captain Sushma Verma too hit a six towards the end. Himachal chased the score in 15 overs.
