Uganda have made it two wins from two matches at the African qualifier for the Women's World T20 today in Windhoek, whilst Zimbabwe won their first match today in Windhoek.

Tanzania batted first after winning the toss against Uganda in the first match today, and started well with Fatuma Kibasu and Monica Pascal putting on 52 for the opening wicket before Kibasu fell for 25 in the 12th over.

Pascal was out soon afterwards for 27, and there was no other double figure score as Uganda restricted Tanzania to 78-7 from their 20 overs. Getrude Candiru was the pick of the bowlers with 4-12. Saidati Kemigisha then top scored for Uganda with 29 as they completed a seven wicket win with four overs to spare.

In the second match of the day, Zimbabwe took on hosts Namibia, with the latter choosing to bat first after Petro Enright won the toss. Only two of their batsmen were able to reach double figures though as they were restricted to 71-7 from their 20 overs, Josephine Nkomo taking 3-9.

Zimbabwe had little trouble chasing down their target, losing just two wickets as they completed an eight wicket win in 10.2 overs.

The hosts will have a day off tomorrow as the tournament continues. Uganda will look to make it three wins from three when they play Kenya, whilst Tanzania will face Zimbabwe.
