Her spell along with Archana Devi did the job for the Indian team in the first 10 overs of the game itself. It was a team performance by all the bowlers to wrap the opposition up for a meager 68 runs in 17.1 overs.
When it came to batting, the women chased this score down in 14 overs. The contributions of Soumya Tiwari who scored 24 runs on 37 balls, and Gogandi Trisha who scored 24 runs on 29 balls were invaluable. Titas Sandhu was named player of the match in the final of the U19 Women’s T20 World Cup.
