Botswana are the only unbeaten team after three matches in the Africa World Cricket League Division 2 tournament being played in Benoni, South Africa this week.

Their five-wicket win over Nigeria yesterday give them six points, ahead of Mozambique, Nigeria and Zambia, with four points each, while Ghana and Swaziland, both promoted from Division 3 are yet to record a win.

In the other matches yesterday, Mozambique defeated Swaziland by 100 runs and Zambia defeated Ghana by 112 runs.

Play resumes tomorrow after today's rest day, with Botswana meeting Zambia, Mozambique playing Nigeria and either Ghana facing Swaziland.

Mozambique, who only began playing cricket in the early 1990s, beat Ghana in their first game before narrowly losing by 11 runs to Zambia. Both those countries have been playing cricket for much longer.
