Province 1 has registered their second win in the ongoing U-19 National Tournament after a clinical ten-wicket win over Madhesh Province. Meanwhile, Madhesh faced their third loss in a row.
Choosing to bat didn’t really work for Madhesh as they crumbled for mere 70 runs in 31.3 overs. Dipesh Kandel (8.3-3-6-3) and Bipin Mahato (8-2-14-3) were the stars picking up three wickets each. Only Mayan Yadav (19) and Dablu Malik (12) could surpass double-digit scores for Madhesh Province.
In reply, Province 1 chased the total in 19.2 overs without losing a wicket. Sonu Ansari remained unbeaten for 45(67), whereas Suvan Gahataraj scored 24(50)*.
Province 1 faced a humiliating 213 runs loss against Sudurpaschim Province in the previous match after being bowled out in just 51 runs. Madhesh, on the other hand, were beaten by Bagmati and Karnali in the earlier matches.
