After rain disruptions over the weekend, Botswana and Pakistan will square off in the semi-finals of the T20 World Group Mini World Cup at the Botswana Cricket oval in Gaborone tonight. The match starts at 6:30pm.

This is the second time in two years that the two teams meet in a semi-final. Last year, the two finished tied at 126 runs, which forced a super over with Pakistan emerging victorious.

It is difficult to pick a winner in tonight’s match as both teams have had a decent run in the group stages. Botswana finished unbeaten in Group B which had Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Allrounder, Karabo Modise bagged a hat trick against Sri Lanka as Botswana finished with a maximum six points.
