An unbeaten 153 off just 116 balls from Malawian batsman Sheilendra Jeena was the highlight on day three of the World Cricket League Division 3 tournament. Jeena hit 19 fours and two sixes and propelled Malawi to 237 for 9 from 50 overs, before they bowled out Gambia for 121. Prince Johnson was Gambia's best bowler, taking 5 for 43 from his 10 overs, while Moses Bahoum (57) top-scored for Gambia. Zaffar Sukhera led the attack for the hosts, taking 3 for 19.

Sierra Leone had an easy day in their match against a youthful Lesotho, winning by six wickets with 35.3 overs to spare. Having been put in, Lesotho slipped from 21 for 1 to 51 for 6, and were eventually shot out for 82 in 32.2 overs. The main resistance came from Masui Tolofi (19). Allrounder Lansana Lamin ensured the Lesotho innings never got going with 3 for 12 from 9.2 overs. Sierra Leone finished the game in a hurry, ending on 85 for 4 from 14.4 overs. Lamin was named the Man of the Match, after hitting two sixes and a four in his brief unbeaten cameo of 19.
