Uganda U-19 female cricket national team, the Baby Victoria Pearls thumped hosts Botswana to complete the group stage of the ICC Women’s U-19 T20 World Cup Qualifiers undefeated.

Proscovia Alako scored 93 runs to guide Uganda to sounding 181 runs in 20 overs against the hosts, Botswana.

The Baby Victoria Pearls won the toss and elected to bat first as Captain Jimia Muhamed (36) and Proscovia Alako (93) combined for an opening stand of 150 runs.

In the chase, Botswana only managed 38 runs thanks to Kevin Amuge who picked four wickets tearing through the top order.

Uganda is now waiting for the results from Group A to know their semifinal opponents who will most likely be East African neighbours, Rwanda.

Uganda finished the group unbeaten after picking up wins against Namibia, Sierra Leone and host Botswana.

The tournament has nine teams with only the winner of the tournament assured of going to the World Cup in 2023 in South Africa.
