From Baroda, seasoned cricketer Tarannum is Goa’s guest player this season.
Choosing to bat first, Chandigarh were bowled out for 109 for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs, with Priyanka Guleria scoring the highest 32.
Shivangi scored an unbeaten 24, while Aradhna Bisht made 22. Chandigarh’s guest player for the season, Shivi Pandey from Chhattisgarh, could not open her batting account.

Chandigarh missed the services of medium-pacer Nandini Sharma who did not join the squad in Chhattisgarh as she picked up an injury. Interestingly, UTCA did not send any replacement for the injured medium-pacer and just 14 players are now part of the Chandigarh team competing in a 10-day T20 meet involving five other teams.
