Triumphant USA Takes the Tournament

Mariana Martinez (10) provided the only resistance on offer as her team was scuttled for 47 runs. The Argentinians has no real answers with the bat against the celebrated US bowling unit. Moksha Chaudhary (3-7) was best but she was not alone. Uzma Iftikhar (2-10), Geetika Kodali (2-13) and Suhani Thadani (1-3) were also among the wickets.
Shebani Bhaskar (23*) and Gargi Bhogle (17*) polished off the runs at a brisk rate, as if to underline and write in bold that the USA were the best team of the tournament and that the trophy was theirs. They could not have claimed victory in a more emphatic way.
