the Mumbai Indians team trials. The young leg-spinner is the first state player to have

approached by a Mumbai Indian official who had seen him bowl during the tournament matches
held in Chennai. The young leg-spinner comes from a small village in Nagaland and has been
excited since the issued Mumbai Indian trials. It will be a big-time for the Nagaland
cricket team to join the auctions and make it to any IPL teams. He will also become the
first player to play an IPL in the Northern Eastern teams.
Kense's side did very well
during the tournament. From the North East, they were the best performing side. They were
expected to play five matches in the game and, on four of those occasions, they managed to
pull off wins. Due to rain, the other game against Chandigarh was abandoned. They finished
in the Plate Category just behind Bihar and Chandigarh.
