Match: Namibia Women vs Nigeria Women, 1st Semi-Final
Date & Time: 11th June 2021, 1:00 PM
Venue: Gahanga International Cricket Stadium, Rwanda
With Nigeria Women having weaker batting and bowling units compared to the opponents, they are expected to fail once again. The venue primarily supports pacers with little to no assistance for the spinners. There is also something on offer for the batters at this venue.
The Namibia Women will look to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a below-par total.
