Mamta Chaudhary inspires Janakpur to title as they beat Biratnagar by 27 runs. It was Mamta’s 55 runs, which included 8 fours, that helped Janakpur put up a total of 131 runs in the match which proved out to be too much for defending champions Biratnagar players to chase at TU ground this morning. This is Janakpur’s second U19 Women’s title in 3 years.

R-7 (Janakpur) won the final match of Wai-Wai U-19 Women’s National Cricket Tournament, 2071 and was awarded with the winning trophy for the event. Biratnagar finished as runner-up after a promising run to finals comes to an disappointing end.
