Kenya recovered from Wednesday’s upset loss to Tanzania, turning the tables on their East African neighbors with a commanding 7 wicket victory as the action at the ICC Africa T20 Regional Final continued in Kigali, Rwanda on Thursday 18 November 2021. Rushab Patel gave a man of the match performance for Kenya, managing 24 runs off 24 balls as the Kenyans easily surpassed the target of 102 runs set by Tanzania, racing to 104 runs for the loss of 3 wickets after 12.3 overs.
They had earlier registered an 8 wicket win over Nigeria, Alex Obanda batting his way into the history books with a monster century that earned him the man of the match accolade, his 103 runs making him the first Kenyan to score a century in a T20 international. The Nigerians had reached 130 for 6 after 20 overs with the Kenyans overhauling them, reaching 136 runs for the loss of 2 wickets after 13.4 overs.
The action continues on Saturday 20 November 2021 with Kenya taking on Nigeria and Uganda in fixtures that they must win if they are to advance to the global qualifiers.
The Global Qualifiers will consist of the four lowest ranked teams from the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup, the four best ranked teams not already qualified for the World Cup or qualifiers; and eight teams from Regional Qualifiers.
