Nagaland registered their win in 2020-21 season by thrashing Arunachal Pradesh in the second match of Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Tournament held at Chennai for the Plate Group on Wednesday. 

Batting first, Arunachal scored 145 for the loss of seven wickets in the regulated overs.  Doria (36) and Akhilesh Sahani and Rahul Dalal scored 31 runs each. 

For Nagaland, Nagaho Chishi, SS Mundhe and debutant Khrievitso Kense took one wicket each.

In reply, Nagaland achieved the victory target in 15.5 overs after losing the opener Jonathan Rongsen for 20 runs. SS Mundhe and Chetan Bist remained not out on 69 and 50 runs. 

Earlier, the first match against Chandigarh was washed out due to bad weather. 

The team next match is against Sikkim on January 15. 

BRIEF SCORES: 

Nagaland 149/1 (Shrikant Mundhe 69*, Chetan Bist 50*, Nazeeb Saiyed 1/28) beat Arunachal Pradesh 145/7 (Techi Doria 36, Akhilesh Sahani 31, Khrievitso Kense 1/19, Shrikant Mundhe 1/28) by 9 wickets.

PTI adds: In another Plate group match, a blistering 51-ball 146 by captain Punit Bist, which included six fours and 17 sixes, powered Meghalaya to a massive 130-run win over Mizoram.

Opting to bat, Meghalaya saw opener DB Ravi Teja (7) fall in the third over after adding 27 runs with Yogesh Tiwari (53). Dippu Sangma fell one run later after which it was a Bist show as he simply toyed with the Mizoram bowling. Bist, who previously played for Delhi, belted the ball all round the Guru Nanak College ground and reached his half-century in 26 balls. He went on the overdrive and hammered 94 runs in the next 25 balls he faced as sixes flew all over the ground and Meghalaya piled up 230 for 6 in 20 overs.

The wicketkeeper-batsman added 120 runs in a little over 10 overs for the third wicket with Tiwari.

The Mizoram batsmen never got going in a massive run chase and only three batsmen reached double figures as they managed to crawl to 100 for 9 in 20 overs. In other matches, Bihar beat thrashed Sikkim by eight-wicket for its second straight win. Bihar is on top of the Plate ground standings with 8 points from two matches followed by Chandigarh and Nagaland with six apiece.
