Kid Dynamite Blows The Gambia Away
Teen fast bowler Lillian Udeh earned the nickname “Kid Dynamite” after her dominant performance against The Gambia at TBS Oval. One of a pack of bowlers that ripped through The Gambia batting, Udeh’s 2-0 earned her the Player of the Match in the 10 wicket victory by Nigeria.
The Gambia’s Fatou Faye won the toss and elected to bat first. Calamity struck in the first over when Lucky Piety caused the runout of Marie Sambou. Then the Kid took the ball. Lillian Udeh bowled 12 deliveries, 2 maidens, 2 wickets. The Gambia batting was in tatters. The other bowlers dined out on the batters as The Gambia was humbled for just 20.
It took Nigeria 11 deliveries to pass the total, winning the match by 10 wickets and earning themselves 2 points.
