In a thrilling finale held at Gahanga Ground, Rwanda’s women’s cricket team emerged victorious in their first-ever Kwibuka tournament. The electrifying atmosphere, fueled by the passionate home crowd, will forever be etched in the memories of a generation. The host team, captained by the astute Diane Bimenyimana, won the toss and elected to field, well aware of Uganda’s penchant for successful run chases.

Uganda’s batting lineup faltered against a formidable Rwandan bowling attack led by Rosine Irera and Maree Vumiliya. Proscovia Alako, enduring a disappointing tournament, departed early, followed swiftly by Kevin Awino. Janet Mbabazi valiantly fought back with a score of 13, but the relentless pace of Immaculate Muhawenimana eventually trapped her LBW. The dependable Stephanie Nampiina, who had been Uganda’s savior throughout the tournament, fought a lone battle, ending with a commendable score of 19. However, Uganda’s innings concluded at a mere 65 runs.canapele tamilia ghencea  מיקרוגל lg לקנות  sexy car models  ejersted szekrény  knoppar och handtag hm  شروط التقديم بمعهد السكرتارية العسكرية للبنات 2019  детски фолклорни музикални инструменти  chuteira nike hypervenom phantom fg acc white total crimson blue lagoon  משחקים לשניים כדורגל 1 על 1  noa scarpe prezzi  leroy merlin deska klozetowa  halo proiettore  прахосмукачка миле  משחקים לשניים כדורגל 1 על 1  lampe berger gebrauchsanweisung 

Rwanda, in their pursuit of victory, demonstrated aggressive intent right from the start. Gisele Ishimwe took charge at the top, launching a blistering assault on Uganda’s captain, Consy Aweko, with two mighty sixes. This onslaught immediately put Uganda on the back foot. Despite losing four wickets during the chase, Rwanda remained composed and never truly felt threatened as they surpassed the target with ease.


This triumph marked Rwanda’s first-ever victory in their own tournament and their maiden triumph over Uganda in T20i cricket. The event showcased the rise of Diane Bimenyimana’s leadership and the team’s collective brilliance.

Outstanding performances were witnessed from both teams throughout the tournament. Among the batters, Stephanie Nampiina of Uganda displayed her skill and resilience, contributing 19 runs off 33 balls at an impressive strike rate of 57.58. Uwase Merveille from Rwanda scored 17 runs off 41 balls, showcasing her steady batting prowess with a strike rate of 41.46. Gisele Ishimwe, also representing Rwanda, displayed aggressive intent, amassing 13 runs off just 17 balls, exhibiting a blistering strike rate of 76.47.

The bowlers proved equally influential in their teams’ success. Ishimwe Henriette of Rwanda stood out with her remarkable figures of 4 overs, conceding only 6 runs while claiming 4 crucial wickets at an economy rate of 1.50. Phionah Egaru Kulume from Uganda showcased her bowling prowess, delivering 4 overs, conceding 11 runs, and taking 2 wickets, maintaining an economy rate of 2.75. Muhawenimana Immaculate of Rwanda also made a significant impact, bowling 4 overs, conceding 12 runs, and securing 2 wickets at an economy rate of 3.00.

The Kwibuka tournament provided a platform for these talented cricketers to showcase their skills, and the passionate home crowd undoubtedly amplified the exhilaration. With Rwanda’s historic victory over Uganda, the tournament’s legacy will forever be remembered as a pivotal moment in the growth of women’s cricket in the region.
