Ghana

Samson Awiah started the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier on a high. He picked up five wickets in the very first game. Kofi Bagabena grabbed five in the next match. Their batting is looking good. They chased down totals in both matches. That should give them confidence, as they have performed well as a team.

Lesotho
