Match: Kenya Women vs Rwanda Women, Match 9.
Date & Time: 10th June 2021, 1:00 PM.
Venue: Gahanga International Cricket Stadium, Rwanda.
Both batters and bowlers have performed well in the tournament, and scores in excess of 100 can be expected in the first innings. Pacers should perform well during the second essay, as there is extra pace and bounce on offer. So, batting first at this venue would be the most ideal option for the captain winning the toss in this game.
