Namibia have started their African Games women's tournament campaign with a win over South Africa today in the Ghanaian capital of Accra.

It was an inexperienced South African side to be fair, with only three having played T20Is before today, with Cricket South Africa billing it as an "Emerging" side. Nevertheless, the game counts as a full T20I and is a big feather in the cap of the Namibian side.

A win looked unlikely when Namibia only managed 89-7 from their 20 overs, Wilka Mwatile scoring 37. But rain at the interval reduced the South African innings to 6 overs, with DLS setting them a target of 31.

Kayleen Green took 3-6 from her two overs as the South Africans could only manage 29-4 from their six overs, losing by one run.

The other game of the morning session had even less play, with Tanzania scoring 58-3 from ten overs against Nigiera before rain brought an end to the game.

The match between Zimbabwe and Rwanda in the afternoon was reduced by rain to a 14-over contest, with Rwanda winning the toss and choosing to bat first. Rwanda managed 73-7 from their 20 overs, with Zimbabwe chasing their target down with two balls to spare to win by 8 wickets thanks to an unbeaten 38 by Modester Mupachikwa.

The other Group B match in the afternoon was reduced to 17-overs. Kenya batted first and scored 63-8, which Uganda chased down with two balls to spare, winning by 6 wickets.

In Group A tomorrow morning, South Africa will look to get their campaign back on track when they play Tanzania, whilst Namibia take on Nigeria. In Group B games in the afternoon, Uganda come up against Zimbabwe and Kenya face off against Rwanda.
