Adamas Howrah Warriors women’s team faced second defeat in a row after suffering a loss at the hands of Harbour diamonds on Tuesday in Salt Lake, Kolkata. 

After being asked to field first, Adamas bowlers were able to restrict the opponents to 100 in the first inning. However, during the chase they fell short by 8 runs. 

Sushmita Ganguly struck early to get two wickets in her first over and captain Dhara Gujjar sent back Payel Vakharia to give the momentum the team needed within the first few overs.

Ganguly then got the better off a set Jhumia Khatun and Adamas were all set to all out them to a very low total. However a 32-run stand for the seventh wicket between Ratna Barman and Jhumpa Roy took Diamnods’ total to 100/7 in the first inning. 

Sushmita Ganguly returned with a bowling figure of 19/3 for Adamas Howrah Warriors.

During the chase, openers Dhara Gujjar and Sushmita Ganguly provided the exact momentum the management were looking for.

36 runs within the power play were already scored when Ganguly departed for 15. But Dhara Gujjar’s (13) dismissal in the next over made the target look stiffer for a young batting lineup like Adamas Howrah Warriors.

Diya Nandi (14), Prativa Mandi (17) tried their best against experienced bowlers like Jhumia Khatun and Sukanya Parida, but eventually fell short of the target by 8 runs.

Jhumia Khatun with a bowling figure of 11/2 was the player of the match.
