The Kwibuka Women’s T20 Tournament is all set to begin on June 9 in Rwanda. This will be the eighth edition of the competition. A total of eight teams will compete for the title, namely - Botswana, Brazil, Germany, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. The tournament will be played in a round-robin format, with the final scheduled to take place on June 18.

The opening game of the competition will see Rwanda Women take on Uganda Women at the Gahanga International Cricket Stadium in Rwanda.

Rwanda Women managed to win two out of four games in the league stages last year. They lost to Kenya in their semi-final clash and faced Nigeria in the third-place play-offs. A good solid performance saw them win the game by eight runs, finishing third in the points table.

Marie Bimenyimana has been handed the responsibility of leading the side in the upcoming edition of the Kwibuka Women’s T20 tournament. She will be eager to lead by example and go all the way in the competition.

Uganda withdrew from the last edition of the tournament due to the Covid-19 crisis in their camp. They have won the tournament twice so far and will look to be at their best in the eighth edition of the Kwibuka Women’s T20 tournament.

Concy Aweko will be leading the side and she will be hoping that her side performs to its potential in the opening game of the competition.
