Uganda and Ghana win on day three
There were just two matches on day three of the ICC Africa Division One Twenty20 tournament in Uganda, with the hosts beating Kenya and Ghana beating Nigeria.
Uganda, batting first after winning the toss at the Kyambogo ground, didn't lose a wicket in their innings, scoring 177. Arthur Kyobe scored 74 from 57 balls, whilst Roger Mukasa scored 101 from 63, the tournament's first century. Kenya showed little fight in their chase and were dismissed for 102 in 19.2 overs, Raj Savala being unable to bat, losing by 75 runs.
In the day's other game, Ghana scored 129 from their 20 overs. In reply, Nigeria's Olajide Bejide scored 59, but no other player could get a start and Nigeria were bowled out for 126 in 19.5 overs, losing narrowly by three runs.
At the halfway stage, Namibia are out in front with five wins from five matches, whilst Uganda have four wins, their only defeat coming against the Namibians. Namibia can secure their place in the World Twenty20 Qualifier if they win their two matches against Nigeria and Uganda tomorrow. The other two matches will see Ghana play the hosts and Kenya play Ghana.
