New international team, Mali Women’s national cricket team’s horrible runs remain to continue in their second international game on Wednesday (19th June). After managing the lowest completed total in Women’s T20I history in their first game, Mali Women now managed the second lowest completed total in Women’s T20I history.
Mali Women national cricket team is currently participating in the Kwibuka Women’s Twenty20 Tournament 2019. Apart from this newer international side, Rwanda Women, Tanzania Women and Uganda Women are also participating in this tournament.
Rwanda is hosting this quadrangular tournament that has started on this Tuesday (18th June). On the opening day of this tournament, Mali Women made their international debut after they faced the host side. Rwanda Women bundled out Mali Women for just six runs (9 overs) which is the lowest total in Women’s T20I history.
Now Mali Women scored 11 runs
On Wednesday, in their second international match, Mali Women managed to score only 11 runs (15.4 overs) against Tanzania Women.
In their first international match, only the opener Mariam Samake (1) managed to open the account.
Against Tanzania Women, only four batswomen opened their accounts, including the opener Mariam Samake (1). The other players to score at least one run in that innings were Oumou Sow (3), Aicha Kone (1) and the wicketkeeper-batswoman Aissata Sangare (1). However, once again, the extras were the highest scorer in their innings which was five (five wides).
All the Tanzania bowlers had the fascinating bowling figures in that match. These bowlers were Perice Mamunya (3-1-3-2), Nasra Saidi (2-1-2-0), Nuru Tindo (3.4-2-1-2), Tabu Omary (3-1-3-2), Zinaida Finkili (2-1-2-1) and the captain Fatuma Kibasu (2-2-0-1).
In reply, Tanzania Women took only four balls to reach that tiny target. Openers Monica Pascal (11*) and Fatuma Kibasu (1*) comfortably chased down that target without losing their wickets. Tanzania Women won that match by ten wickets with 116 balls remaining. This victory is the joint largest victory (by balls remaining) in Women’s T20I history. Just one day ahead, Rwanda Women created that largest victory record during chasing the seven runs target against Mali Women.
