The Hush Post: The ball went north and the bat went east and all cricket hell broke loose. The first to tweet it out was none other than former BCCI president Anurag Thakur. In the history of cricket this will stand out among the most hilarious. On Friday, the Nagaland Under-19 women’s cricket team were all out for two runs in 17 overs against Kerala in the ongoing BCCI Women’s Under-19 One-Day League and Knockout Tournament at Guntur. Off the bat, only one run was scored by opener Menka who took 18 deliveries. The only other run came off a wide bowl bowled by Kerala’s opening bowler Aleena Surendran. Set a target of three runs, Kerala took one ball to score it with Nagaland’s opening bowler Deepika Kaintura starting off with a wide after which the first legal ball was hit for a four by Ansu S Raju. Kerala coach Suman Sharma said it was a deserved win. Nagaland are not a great side and they were scoring well but bowling them out for two was brilliant. Credit goes captain Minnu and other girls in the squad,” the coach said after the game. Despite registering a big win, Kerala failed to qualify for the last-four stage, as they could win just two matches out of five games they played. Earlier in the season, Nagaland had bowled 42 wides in the NE-Bihar U-19 one-day competition against Manipur. In that match Manipur bowled an astonishing 94 wides.
