New Delhi, November 24
A fine all-round performance by Reema Malhotra, who claimed five wickets for 55 runs and then hit a delectable unbeaten 26, went in vain as North Zone lost to Air India by 62 runs in a league match of the Rani Jhansi Trophy Inter-Zonal Women's Cricket Tournament, organised by the Railway Sports Promotion Board, at the Air Force (Palam) ground. The final will be played on November 28.
