Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Nigeria vs Tanzania - ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifier - 1st T20I


The 1st T20I of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifier will take place between Nigeria and Tanzania at the Gahanga International Cricket Stadium, Rwanda.

Current Form Nigeria:

Nigeria have been in a terrific form off late. They have won all 5 of their last completed fixtures. In all of those games, Nigeria have convincingly beaten the opposition at will. Segun Olayinka has been scoring good runs at the top of the order and is responsible of getting the team off to a flier. With the ball, Peter Aho is very consistent and he will be looking to hit the right areas with variations in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifier.

Nigeria look a very strong unit on paper but they can be challenged by Tanzania in the first match of the tournament.

Current Form Tanzania:

Tanzania also enjoy a very good run in the recent times. They have won all of their last 4 completed fixtures. In one of those matches, Tanzania simply butchered the bowlers of Mozambique to put on a huge total of 242 for 6 in 20 overs which they defended easily. Tanzania have the fire power in the middle order that can come good on any given day. With the ball in hand, Salim Jumbe has been fantastic in the recently finished games for Tanzania.

Tanzania surely have the right balance in the team to challenge Nigeria in the first match of the tournament.
