The Nigerian cricket team started off the Kwibuka T20 Women’s Tournament in Kigali, Rwanda on a winning note as they beat their Cameroonian counterparts by 9 wickets.

The Nigerian ladies bounced back from the 12-run loss to Uganda on Friday to seal their first win in the tournament’s 10th edition.

In the game at the Gahanga International Oval, Cameroon won the toss and opted to bat first.

The 54th-ranked side, however, struggled with the bat, thanks to the best bowler of the 13th African Games in Ghana, Nigeria’s Lilian Ude.

The 17-year-old dominated the bowling chart (4-2-7-4) for the Nigerian side, as debutants Cameroon lost wickets in consecutive sessions.

The 26th-ranked team eventually limited their neighbors to 26 runs all out in 18.2 overs.

In reply, Nigeria needed only 3.5 overs to score 27 runs for the loss of one wicket and went on to win by nine wickets.

Ude was later named the Player of the Match for her bowling performance.

Nigeria will take on Kenya in their next match, for a chance to make it two wins in three games.

Meanwhile, a total of eight teams are featuring in the annual tournament, which is in remembrance of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda.
