Botswana through to T20 World Cup qualifier final


Botswana women's cricket team is through to the final of the T20 World Cup Africa Division 2 qualifier after defeating Sierra Leone by a margin of 17 runs at the Botswana Cricket Association Oval today.

The Herons won the toss and elected to bat, managing to score 131 runs with the visiting team's bowlers, conceding a staggering 51 extras.

Following the contribution of extras, Florence Samanyika emerged as Botswana's top scorer with 22 runs, while Amantle Mokgotlhe added 17 to the total. Sierra Leone's bowlers struggled to maintain discipline, consistently delivering wides and facing the consequences. Emma Kamara led Sierra Leone's effort to secure victory with her score of 25, but her team fell short by 17 runs. Botswana is in the final where they will face either Kenya or Cameroon, two teams scheduled to compete in the other semi-final this afternoon. Furthermore, the national team has progressed to the next phase of the qualifiers to be held in Uganda in December.
