As Vidarbha batters needed to take on the chances and they did, Gargi lost her wicket in trying to slog one down the ground. Vidarbha were still 54 runs away from the target and had just 1 wicket remaining. The balls were depleting and in the following over, Nupur as well took her chance batting on 43 and lost her wicket. That wicket finally closed the match in favor of Andra
The duo took the pacers with confidence and found the boundaries as well to keep their side in the hunt. Andra skipper brought her spinners back into the attack to try and slow down the scoring rate. The duo went on to stitch a 64 runs partnership for the 9th wicket.
Just as it looked like Andra have sealed the match, Nupur along with Gargi provided some resilience lower down the order. The duo took their time and found the boundaries, they did not even give away their wickets cheaply as well.
In no time, Vidarbha batting just crumbled. After the fall of Disha's wicket, Vidarbha lost 4 more wickets since then as their middle order and lower-middle order failed big time. All of a sudden Vidarbha were 104/8 wickets and the match was probably done and dusted.
Slowly and steadily Disha reached her half-century as she found a boundary to do so. But things just went from bad to worse as Disha lost her wicket in trying to accelerating the scoring rate. After that, Vidarbha plunged into deeper trouble as they lost 2 more wickets.
This was mounting the pressure of the required run rate which started to creep up slowly and steadily. Disha hit the first maximum of this inning in the 23rd over. But Andra made things tough for Vidarbha as Vaishnavi lost her wicket as well
Bharti Fulmali the new batswoman in lost her wicket batting on a 0. The scoring rate slowed down once again as after 20 overs Vidarbha had just 53/2 on the board. Vaishnavi the next batter which came out to the middle took her time as well.
As the over progressed, the scoring rate took a dip for Vidarbha. Disha and Prangini once again decided to up the ante just before drinks. Things started to happen for Andra post drinks as Gadwal got the wicket of Prangini right on ball one post drinks.
Coming in to chase the target of 219 runs, Disha Kasat took the charge early on and found the boundaries for Vidarbha as she looked firm out in the middle. Disha was the dominant scorer and Prangini batting alongside her took some time to get going.
The Andra batting towards the latter stage of the innings just lost wickets consistently and were unable to get a move on. The low string of scores in the middle order and Andra could manage post just 218 runs in their 50 overs.
Andra had a decent start at the top batting first as Neeragattu Anusha played a decent knock of 52 runs. Other batters Latha, Durga did get the starts and got themselves in but were unable to convert those starts.
Andra qualifies for the semi-finals and will face Jharkhand. As the innings were coming closer to the close, Nupur needed to get the big hits, in trying to do so, she chipped one straight to the packed off-side field and her stubborn resistance came to an end.
46.2 Challa Jhansi Lakshmi to Nupur Kohale, OUT! IT'S DONE AND DUSTED! Andhra head into the semi-finals! Tossed up delivery outside off-stump, Nupur steps down the track and tries to play a lofted drive over extra cover. Didn't get the elevation she wanted and it's straight into the hands the fielder, who gobbles it with glee! That wicket gives Lakhsmi her fifer as well!
46.1 Challa Jhansi Lakshmi to Nupur Kohale, tossed up delivery on off-stump, Nupur prods forward and defends it on the off-side.
Vidarbha are 169/9 after 46 overs! They still need 50 runs in 24 balls to pull off a miracle! No boundaries and just 4 runs coming from that over for Vidarbha. Nupur the lone batter now needs to go for the big shot as the gap is increasing for them.
45.6 Bareddy Anusha to Komal Zanzad, loopy low full toss on the stumps, Komal whips it towards mid-wicket. There's a misfield but Nupur denies the single.
45.5 Bareddy Anusha to Komal Zanzad, a touch short outside off-stump, Komal rocks back and punches it towards cover
