The fifth match of the Kwibuka Women's T20 tournament will see Kenya Women lock horns with Nigeria Women on Tuesday.
Kenya Women played their first match on Monday against Botswana Women. Having been asked to bat first, Botswana Women scored 68 runs for the loss of nine wickets. They were restricted to a below-par total courtesy of a five-wicket haul by Sarah Wetoto. In response, the Kenya Women successfully chased down the target with nine wickets in hand and 75 balls to spare.
Nigeria Women, meanwhile, played their season opener against Namibia Women on Sunday. Nigeria Women chose to bat first and managed to score only 52 runs for the loss of eight wickets from 20 overs. In reply, Namibia Women won the game comfortably with eight wickets and 64 balls to spare.
Kenya Women will look to continue their fine run in the league while Nigeria Women will be on the lookout for their first victory of the season.

The pitch is a good one to bowl on, with the pacers getting enough assistance from the wicket early on. So the team winning the toss should look to bowl first. Batters will also benefit from the track if they understand the conditions and limit playing risky shots.
