Skipper Binu Budha Magar took 3-5 from 1.5 overs for APF with Sarita Magar and Sita Rana Magar getting two scalps apiece.

Jyoti led APF's top order batting making 40 from 44 balls with seven boundaries. After her departure, Karuna played some attacking shots making a 29-ball 42 hammering six fours and a six. Player-of-the-match Binu's 15-ball cameo of 21 with three fours helped them reach 150.

Mamata Chaudhary also made 15 from 13 balls with two boundaries and Indu Berma hits a six in her five-ball eight. Kabita Kunwar took 3-23 from four overs, while Anjali Chand and Laxmi Saud had one scalp apiece. APF will play Rising Cricket Women on Wednesday's final.
