Kwibuka T20: Evelyn Anyipo stars as Victoria Pearls destroys Rwanda

Evelyn Anyipo produced a masterclass performance as Victoria Pearls beat Rwanda by 7 wickets.

The result secured Uganda their second win at the Kwibuka Women’s T20 tournament currently happening in Kigali, Rwanda.

The pace bowler was in a class of her own, plucking four wickets while conceding just one run.

She bowled three maidens as Uganda restricted the hosts to 80 runs en route to their second win.

Stephanie Nampiina conceded 20 runs, but she was also in the business of picking wickets. She had three to her name.

During the chase, the bat was manned by the opening pair of Kevin Awino and Janet Mbabazi.

Normally a three or a four, Mbabazi opened, and both she and Awino scored 34 runs each for the Victoria Pearls.

Opener Proscovia Alako who has been struggling with runs was dropped down the order.

She did not get the chance to bat as Uganda used only four batters to chase the set target by the host nation.

Promising talent Lorna Anyait debuted for the team and was given four complete Overs to bowl.

The Olila prodigy became the second player to debut for the Victoria Pearls in a space of 24 hours after Malisa Ariokot received hers yesterday.

Uganda remains top of the five-nation group in Rwanda. The side is now playing Nigeria at the same venue.
