Tanuja P Kanwer put in a fine all-round performance as Railways continued their staggering run in the Senior Women’s One Day Trophy – India’s premier domestic 50-over tournament – by winning the title for a record-extending 14th time on Tuesday.
In a repeat of last season’s final, Railways got the better of Karnataka once again and registered a four-wicket win at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi.
Asked to bat first, Karnataka were bowled-out for just 163 runs in 49.4 overs, with No 3 batter G Divya making the biggest contribution of 69 runs off 116 balls.
Kanwer picked three wickets for Railways, while Preeti R Bose and Swagatika Rath got two wickets apiece.
In reply, Railways finished with a total of 169/6 in 47.3 overs. Renuka Choudhari (20) and Mona (29) got a partnership early on before T Sarkar (25), D Hemalatha (38*), Kanwer (32) and Rath (12*) helped complete the chase.
The competition has had 16 completed editions in history, with Railways not managing to emerge as champions on just two occasions.
