Uganda’s national Women Cricket team, Victoria Pearls out-muscled Brazil on Tuesday, at the 2022 Kwibuka T20 tournament in Kigali, Rwanda.

It was an impressive display for the Pearls as Evelyn Anyipo and Janet Mbabazi managed three wickets apiece as Brazil folded 57 runs in 10 overs. Pearls had put 141 overs earlier at the IPRC Oval.

Uganda’s blistering start was masterminded by the brilliant Kevin Awino who hit 69 runs off 63 balls, coupled with eight boundaries, in the first innings.

Anyipo and Mbabazi’s three straight deliveries in the 13 overs that had Uganda reeling followed Gloria Akubor’s 22 off 24.

Rita Musamali (15), Naomi Kayondo (5) and Susan Hellen Kakai (10) added few more runs as Uganda finished with a good 141.

Lindsay Mariano scored 31/46, but she failed to get a stable partner in a spell Brazil lost six wickets inside the first five overs with just 16 runs to show before they were all out for a paltry 57!

It’s the third win for Uganda who earlier beat Rwanda and Nigeria by 6 and 9 wickets respectively.

Uganda who lost to Kenya and Tanzania by 3 and 6 wickets in that order, are third on the table.

It’s the third loss for guest nation Brazil whose two wins came against Botswana and the other guest nation in Germany.
