Puducherry, Jan 16: Two days after losing to Madhya Pradesh by 7 wickets, Odisha women on Tuesday lost to Chandigarh by 12 runs in a low-scoring Senior Women's One-day Trophy match, at CAP Ground 3, here.

Put into bat, Chandigarh women scored 108/10 in 33.5 overs. Monika Pandey held her nerves on a pitch that favoured bowlers and did well to score a compact 51 in 78 balls. She hit 7 boundaries in her resilient knock.

The only other Chandigarh batter to have batted with purpose and patience was Shivangi. She put on board 18 runs in 57-balls, surviving a few close chances.

Odisha bowlers and fielders did their best to restrict their opponents to 108 and bundle them out in 33.5 overs. 

Seasoned Odisha off-spinner Priyanka Priyadarshini topped the bowling chart with a superb 4/20 spell in 7.5 overs. She was ably supported by right-arm pacer Rima Laxmi Ekka, who too dazzled with an equally excellent 3/14 effort.

Chasing a victory target of 109, Odisha could manage only 96 in 40.4 overs. Skipper Madhuri Meheta (26 runs in 57 balls) and Pagyan Parimita Mohanty (13 runs in 26 balls) did put up a fight. But that  was not sufficient to enable Odisha to post a win.

Chandigarh bowlers, especially Rajni Devi (3/18) and Nandani Sharma (3/27) never allowed Odisha women to breathe easy in the low-scoring keenly contested battle. 

Brief scores: 

Chandigarh 108/10 (33.5 overs);

Odisha 96/10 (40.4 overs).

Chandigarh women won by 12 runs.
