Qatar 54/10 in 19.4 overs
Uganda 55/3 in 10.3 overs
Uganda won by 7 wickets
After a fruitful first day against the hosts, Uganda went on to record their second win of the tournament against Qatar in a low scoring game.
Victoria Pearls won the toss and elected to field first, a decision that saw them limit Qatar to a small score.
Irene Alumo gave no chase to Qatar players as she registered figures of 3/3 in the four overs she bowled with two maiden overs.
Notable figures of 2/7 and 2/13 from Sarah Akiteng and Concy Aweko respectively didn’t go unnoticed as they helped Victoria Pearls limit Qatar to a total score of 54/10 in 19.4 overs.
Despite a number of players facing many balls during their innings, Qatar failed to get anybody past double figures as they failed to form any meaningful partnership on the crease.
Kevin Awino and Proscovia Alako got Victoria Pearls on the right truck in the chase as each contributed 21 runs off 20 balls and 5 runs off 4 balls respectively before a new pair was created.
Janet Mbabazi’s experience didn’t go unnoticed as she pulled off 23 runs off 29 balls to help Uganda chase down the required score in 10.3 overs.
The result means Uganda go top of the table with two wins from two engagements with the other win being against Kenya.
There will be no time to reset for the Victoria Pearls as they will be back in action tomorrow against Tanzania in search for a third win in a row.
