Uganda extended her perfect start at the ongoing ICC Women’s U19 T20 World Cup Qualifiers after beating Sierra Leone on Sunday.
It’s the second win for Uganda at the ongoing Qualifiers in Botswana where a solo ticket is up for grabs to the World Cup.
The first ever ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup will take place in South Africa from January 2023.
The Ugandan team, coached by Yusuf Nanga, beat Namibia in their opener on Saturday by 4 wickets.
They built on that win in the opener to overcome Sierra Leone, and will end their group stages with a tie against hosts Botswana.
Sierra Leone sent in Uganda to bat first after winning the toss; Sandra Achwao top-scored for Uganda with 48 runs off 46 balls while Patricia Timosang added 29 to set 107.
And Uganda finished off the game thanks to good bowling figures like Patricia Timong 2-16 and Rachael Achan 1-11.
Group A has Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania and Mozambique.
The top two teams in each group progress to the Semifinals before the overall winner will qualify for the U19 Women’s World Cup.
