Series: Africa World Cup Qualifiers Sep 2021
Venue: BCA 2, Gaborone
Result: Tanzania by 256 runs
Tanzania Punish Wayward Eswatini
Fatuma Kibasu scored 127 not out as Tanzania posted the third highest score in women’s T20 Internationals as they brushed aside Eswatini.
Supported by Monica Pascal (54) and Saum Mtae (52), Kibasu scored her second century at the blistering run rate of 192.42. She was also supported by some poor bowling, one of whom, Mbali Dlamini (0-19) was removed from the attack by the umpires after just two deliveries. The fielding will be an area Eswatini will also be looking to improve in the futre.
It took the Tanzania bowlers just 11.5 overs to dismiss Eswatini for 23, recording a victory by 256 runs, the third highest in history.
Tanzania 279/2 (Fatuma Kibasu 127*, Monica Pascal 54, Saum Mtae 52) 20 overs
Eswatini 23 (Mwanamvua Ushanga 3-1, Sophia Jerome 3-7) 11.5 overs
