Africa Division 2 underway through the rain
ICC Media Release
Rain has spoiled WCL Africa Division Two in South Africa, with five of the six matches on the first two days being completely washed out.
All three matches on the first day were abandoned due to rain and rescheduled to the tournament's reserve day. There was no rain on day two, but two matches were abandoned due to wet outfields, with only Ghana v Mozambique at the main oval of Willowmoore Park - a Test match venue - taking place.
In that match, Ghana won the toss and chose to bat first. Their upper order struggled, and they were reliant on an innings of 48 from number nine Peter Ananya and 37 from number six Lawrence Ateak to take their total to 183 before they were bowled out in their 48th over.
In Mozambique's reply, only Syed Shah, with 69, managed to get a start, and they were bowled out for 151, losing by 32 runs. Kofi Bagabena was the pick of the Ghana bowlers with 3-37.
The two matches scheduled to be played on the out grounds of Willowmoore Park on today's third day were moved to alternative venues in Benoni, which allowed play to take place in all three games.
A full report on those matches will follow tomorrow, but in summary, Zambia beat Swaziland by 8 wickets, Ghana beat Malawi by 7 wickets and Mozambique beat Sierra Leone by 43 runs.
