Senior men’s inter-district cricket: Chümoukedima progress to semis

Chümoukedima and Longleng won their respective matches at the ongoing senior men’s inter-district cricket tournament at Nagaland Cricket Stadium and Sovima Cricket Ground on Friday.
Playing the first match at Nagaland Cricket Stadium, Chümoukedima defeated Peren by 58 runs to book its slot in the semi-finals. Sent in to bat first by Peren, Chümoukedima’s Keniezetuo Rio (16), Mughavi Sumi (26), Sedezhalie Rupreo (46 not out) and Imliwati (22) finely contributed to pose 148 runs on the board in a 20 overs reduced match. OM Sangma was the pick of Peren bowlers as he took 3 wickets while Bamyibe Npanme and Poiring picked up 1 wicket each.
Peren came in for the run chase with an approachable attitude for a win but bowling attack from Chümoukedima restricted their brave efforts and could not build any partnerships and managed to muster only 90 runs losing 7 wickets in 20 overs. Imliwati and Keduowhetuo picked up 2 wickets each while Mhalevor, Khrievitso and Aniezo took 1 wicket each for Chümoukedima.
Chümoukedima’s captain Imliwati was adjudged man of the match for scoring 22 runs and bagging 2 wickets.
In the second match at Sovima Cricket Ground, Wokha required a win to qualify for the semi-finals, however, Longleng defeated them by 33 runs as both teams now bowed out of the tournament. Having sent in to bat first, Longleng managed to pile up 139 runs in 19.4 overs having lost all wickets. The opening batsman shared a 65 runs partnership as Moakumzuk made 50 runs and Shingpang made 21 runs. Bidesi Nayak and Arjun Kumar Yadav contributed 45 and 11 runs respectively for Longleng to pose a target of 140 runs for a must win for Wokha. Bowling first, Nchumbemo Kikon led the charge for Wokha as he scalped 4 wickets in 4 overs.
Nzanthung Mozhui (20) and Renjamo Y Mozhui (36) combined in the run chase to give Wokha a good start supported by Nchumbemo Kikon (16) (not out) and Romokhon Humtsoe (10) (not out) but bowling from Longleng restricted Wokha to a tally of 106 runs only in 20 overs.
