Kenya ease past Sierra Leone

Cricinfo

Kenya recovered from their loss to Tanzania to beat Sierra Leone by 10 wickets in the ongoing Africa Women’s tournament in Kampala, Uganda.

Sierra Leone won the toss and elected to bat and they never got going at all struggling at 8 for 5 early on but they fought hard to post 49. Mercyline Adhiambo was the pick of the bowlers picking up 3 for 4 and Man of the Match Sarah Bhakita, debutant Mako Wako and Emily Ruto picked two wickets apiece.

Kenya got off to a flying start and took only 14.5 overs to reach their target thanks to 23 runs apiece from openers Bhakita and Margaret Banja, who has been batting brilliantly since the event began last Friday.
