Shillong, Jan 19: Meghalaya were defeated by 259 runs in their second match of the Senior Women’s One Day Trophy versus Rajasthan in Nagpur on Thursday.

Riticia Nongbet was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 2/48 in 10 overs. Not only was she the most successful in terms of wickets, she was also the most economical of the seven Meghalaya bowlers used. Ajima Sangma took the other scalp, finishing with 1/63.
