Match 4: Kenya vs Rwanda | Squads | Players to watch | Fantasy Playing XI | Live streaming

Both Kenya and Rwanda have lost their opening games to the United Arab Emirates and hosts Uganda respectively and it’ll be worth seeing the two teams fight it out to claim their 1st win.


Kenya – Sharon Juma (C, WK), Esther Wachira, Venasa Ooko, Daisy Njoroge, Lavendah Idambo, Flavia Atieno, Ann Wanjira, Faith Mwende, Monicah Ndhambi, Lynz Nabwire, Charity Muthoni, Kelvia Ogola, Mercy Ahono, Marion Juma

Rwanda – Alice Ikuzwe, Gisele Ishimwe, Rosine Irera, Sifa Ingabire, Belyse Murekatete, Cynthia Tuyizere, Geovanis Uwase, Henriette Ishimwe, Marie Bimenyimana (C), Flora Irakoze (WK), Merveille Uwase (WK), Sarah Uwera (WK), Clarisse Umutoniwase, Immaculee Muhawenimana, Josiane Nyirankundineza, Margueritte Vumiliya

Players to watch out:
Venasa Ooko
The 24-year-old batter in 26 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) has got to 322 runs at an average of 21.46 and has got the highest score of 57*. Ooko did get going in the series straightaway with a 14 but has got to look to convert her starts now.

Daisy Njoroge
The 26-year-old in 27 T20Is has got to 143 runs and as a part-time pacer has bagged 10 wickets. Daisy is handy with runs in the 20s and much more importantly, got her series underway on a high note with bowling figures of 2/21.

Marie Diane Bimenyimana
The 26-year-old all-rounder in 45 T20Is has got to 553 runs which includes her highest of 114*, and with the ball, in 20 innings has struck as many wickets. Marie, cheaply for just 1 was dismissed in the opener, but expect the skipper to bounce back.

Immaculee Muhawenimana
The 24-year-old pacer in 36 innings has bagged as many wickets at an economy rate of 4.50 and has got the best figures of 4/6. Against Uganda, in the opener, Immaculee started well with figures of 1/17 off 3 overs and Rwanda will wish for her to carry on the same momentum.

The 22-yards at the Lugogo Cricket Oval, like ever before, continue to aid the bowlers, both pacers and spinners. Set batters can make the most of the wicket as the ball comes onto the bat nicely and there are rewards for shots.

With rain on the radar, throughout the match duration, it could well turn out to be an unpleasant day to be at the cricket. The temperature is expected to hover around 23°C and the humidity is forecasted at 81%.

Fantasy playing XI:
Sarah Uwera, Sharon Juma, Gisele Ishimwe, Daisy Njoroge, Venasa Ooko, Geovanis Uwase, Esther Wachira, Henriette Ishimwe, Belyse Murekatete, Josiane Nyirankundineza, Margueritte Vumiliya
