Four of five Kerala U-19 bowlers did not concede a single run in the match or the 11.4 overs that they bowled.

The Nagaland women's Under-19 cricket team created a unique and unwanted record when they were bowled out for just two runs by Kerala in a Group B match of the Women's Under-19 One Day League on Thursday. The opener Menka was the only batter to get her name on the board with a solitary run as all others were dismissed for a duck. Kerala captain Minnu Mani picked up four wickets without conceding a run off her four overs. Also, there was a wide ball bowled by the bowler which added to the total and they could starkingly muster only two runs in a One-Day game.

Nagaland won the toss and opted to bat first at JKC College ground in Guntur against Kerala.
