The semi-finals of the ICC World Cricket League Africa Division Three tournament will be played today in Benoni, South Africa, with Sierra Leone meeting Swaziland and Rwanda opposing Ghana.

The tournament, which features most of the African Affiliate ICC members, began on Sunday.

The standings for the two pools after the preliminary matches are:

Pool One: Sierra Leone 6, Rwanda 4, Lesotho 2, Malawi 0 Pool Two: South African Invitation XI 6, Ghana 4, Swaziland 2, Gambia 0

The semi-finals to decide the lower placings are Lesotho v SA Invitation XI (which is not eligible to contest the main semi-finals) and Malawi v Gambia.

Swaziland's win over Gambia was its first win in an official ICC tournament.

In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
