Uganda and Zimbabwe are top of Group A and Group B respectively in the men's cricket tournament at the African Games in Ghana and are the only unbeaten teams in the tournament.

Zimbabwe's win on day two came in the morning against Tanzania. Omary Kitunda scored exactly half of Tanzania's runs as they were bowled out for 86, Wallace Mubayiwa taking 3-12. Zimbabwe captain Clive Madande top scored with an unbeaten 42 in his teams run chase as they completed a four wicket win with 3.3 overs to spare.

The makeshift Namibian side won the toss and batted first against Nigeria and scored 121-7 from their 20 overs, Dylan Leicher top scoring with an unbeaten 42. A battling chase from Nigeria got them into a position where they needed 14 from the final over.

Shaun Fouché went for 11 runs from the first four balls before he botched an attempt at a Mankad. A leg bye when the fifth ball was finally delivered took Nigeria to 120, with Sylvester Okpe hitting the final ball for a six to secure a three wicket win.

Uganda's win in the afternoon session came with a dominant performance over hosts Ghana. Roger Mukasa and Simon Ssesazi put on an opening stand of 160 before the latter was dismissed for 90, scored from 509 balls. Mukasa reached 69 before he was out as Uganda racked up 194-5 from their 20 overs. Obed Harvey took 5-36 for the home side.

Only two Ghana batters were able to reach double figures in their reply as they were bowled out for 73, losing by 121 runs. Juma Miyagi was the pick of the bowlers with 3-10.

In the other Group A match in the afternoon, Kenya won the toss and chose to bat first against the South African side. Collin Obuya, who made his Kenya debut before all but one of the South African team were born, top scored with 58 as Kenya made 141-6 from their 20 overs. Aarnav Patel then took 5-15 as South Africa were bowled out for 71, losing by 70 runs.

Today is a rest day in Ghana with play resuming tomorrow. Group A action takes place in the morning with hosts Ghana playing Kenya and Uganda taking on South Africa. In Group B in the afternoon, Namibia will come up against Tanzania, with NIgeria v Zimbabwe rounding out the day's fixtures.

At the time of writing, there appears to be some confusion about the status of matches being played by South Africa at the games. Whilst there is no argument that they are not being represented by a full strength side in either the men's or women's tournaments - the men's side is a South African Universities team with the women's an Emerging Players team - the matches were initially listed as T20Is.

This follows the precedent set at the Asian Games last year where in the men's tournament the five full members and the Maldives were all otherwise engaged and were represented by makeshift squads but their matches were still counted as full T20Is.

Whilst the ICC and Cricinfo still list the matches played by South Africa at the African Games as T20Is, Cricket Archive no longer lists them as such. As cricket begins to appear in more multi-sports events leading up to its Olympic return in 2028, the ICC needs to make a formal ruling on the status of matches at these events. The Olympics is almost certain to have teams that technically don't have T20I status -  a Great Britain side would play instead of England and the West Indies competes separately. The ICC ruled that the Barbados games at the 2022 Commonwealth Games would be T20Is, but a more long-term ruling is needed.
