Botswana lift Division Two title
Botswana beat Mozambique by six wickets today in Johannesburg to secure the WCL Africa Division Two title after going unbeaten throughout the tournament. They had Abdul Patel, who scored an unbeaten 71, and Tshepo Mhozya, who took 5/32, to thank for the win.
In the other matches of the day, Nigeria continued their return to form with a 70 run win over Ghana. They finish second in this tournament with four victories to their credit, their first in an ICC tournament since 2004. Zambia also won, beating Swaziland by 156 runs to finish third in the tournament.
Mozambique finished fourth, Ghana finished fifth and Swaziland propped up the table in sixth place, though they were playing at a higher level than they would have expected at this stage in their international career, having only been added to the Division Three tournament earlier this year at the last minute following the withdrawal of Cameroon.
Botswana will theoretically now be promoted to the Africa Division One tournament, though as that tournament has been rumoured, promised and cancelled so many times, it is almost ready to assume mythical status, and may not take place this year.
