Cameroon women take on Namibia women in the 20th match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Qualifiers 2021 at Botswana Cricket Association Oval 1 ground in Gaborone on Tuesday.
Cameroon has played two games so far and has suffered heavy losses in both those games. They have struggled to cope with the pressure of playing at the highest level.
The totals they have put in two games tell the story itself. Chasing 191 against Uganda, Cameroon women were knocked over for 35. In the next match against Nigeria, they could only manage to put 47 on the board. The batters need to play responsibly to stand any chance in the competition. They need to turn the tables around against Namibia women in their upcoming clash.
Namibia women, on the other hand, are on a roll in the competition so far. They have played three games so far and are yet to lose a game. After defeating Uganda by four runs in their opening game, they continued the run by winning the following games comprehensively.
The batters have done a fine job of posting good totals on the board and the bowlers have backed them to restrict the opposition to low scores. In the last game against Sierra Leone, Sune Wittmann was brilliant with the bat as he scored 52 off 43 balls. Defending 145, the bowlers stepped up to restrict the Sierra Leone women to 87, winning by 57 runs. A win in their next game will see them retain top spot in group B.
