LIVE - Kenya Women vs Nigeria Women
Current Form Kenya Women:
Kenya Women thrashed Botswana Women to win their first game of the tournament.
Bowling first, Kenya Women restricted Botswana Women to 68 for 9 in 20 overs. The opening bowler Lavendah Idambo was quite accurate in her lines and she gave away just 6 runs in her spell of 4 overs. As a result, Botswana Women could not fully utilize the powerplay overs. Sarah Wetoto troubled the middle order batters and picked up 5 wickets for 12 runs. Botswana Women could never recover from this threatening spell of bowling and got reduced to an under par total.
Chasing 68, Kenya Women went all guns blazing. The opening pair put on 39 runs for the first wicket. Queentor Abel was the top run scorer as he smashed 35 off 18 balls. Margaret Ngoche at number 3 scored an unbeaten 14 and helped take Kenya Women home in the 8th over with 9 wickets in hand.

Batting first, Nigeria Women could only manage a total of 52 for 8 in 20 overs. Samantha Agazuma who came in at number 7 was the top run scorer as she made 7 runs. This tells the sorry story of Namibia Women. For Namibia Women, Victoria Hamunyela was the top wicket taker as she picked up 4 batters for 8 runs.
Chasing a small total of 52, Namibia Women were very wise in their approach and started cautiously. The opening pair picked up pace when required and laid out the base for a successful chase.
