Uganda win Africa Under-19 women's championship
Home advantage wasn't enough for Tanzania as they lost the final of the African Under-19 women's championship at the Annadil Burhani ground.
Batting first in the 30 over match, Tanzania were bowled out for 57 in 29.2 overs. They managed to take Uganda down to the very last ball of their innings, but the visitors pulled through to win by 3 wickets. Earlier in the day, Rwanda beat Kenya by 25 runs to secure third place.
The tournament was a low scoring one, with Uganda's 121-4 against Rwanda on the first day being the top score. The lowest score was Kenya's 18 against Tanzania on the same day.
The scores would have been even lower had it not been for the huge amount of extras - especially wides - conceded in the tournament. Extras was the top scorer in ten of the sixteen innings in the tournament, and 397 of the 1139 runs in the event (35%) were extras. Coaches in the region would do well to work on accuracy when it comes to bowling.
