RTC College had Anamika Kumari as the top scorer with 28 runs, while Kumari Sabita (11) and Vijeeta (19) made notable contributions, setting a foundation for the team. The batters that followed had high expectations resting upon them, but unfortunately, the team could only muster a modest total of 113 runs.

Chennai’s openers set the stage with twin scores of 24, giving their team a promising platform. However, despite the positive start, Chennai couldn’t make the most of it as Ranchi’s bowling attack wreaked havoc. On the back of an ordinary batting display, Ranchi’s Priti Kumari and Kumari Sabati stood out with two wickets each, guiding their team to a convincing 24-run victory, having effectively limited Chennai to a meager total of 89.

Her impeccable timing resulted in six boundaries and five maximums. Her impressive knock came to an end on the 33rd ball, as she walked off the field with a score of 70 runs to her name. Building upon Jhanvi’s quick-fire innings, Mumbai reached a total of 158/5, showcasing their strong batting prowess.
