The ICC World T20 Qualifiers kicked off on September 9 in Botswana. Tanzania Women now lock horns with Mozambique Women on September 11 in the 11th fixture of the tournament. This is set to be Tanzania’s second match while it will be the third game for Mozambique.
Tanzania began their conquest against a formidable Zimbabwe side, scoring 103 runs before getting bowled out while batting first. Monica Pascal was the star with the bat, scoring a 41-ball 42 on a seemingly tough batting surface. Nasra Saidi was the pick of the bowlers, snaring 2 wickets with an economy of just 3 RPO. The Zimbabwe side emerged as winners in yet another low scoring encounter, chasing the target down in 19 overs.
The Mozambique side started off their campaign against the Rwanda Women and played their second match against the Botswana Women. The performance by the batting department in both encounters was below par and disappointing to an extent. The Mozambique outfit need to step up their game in all departments if they want to pose a threat to the Tanzanian side.
