Namibian bowler Wilka Mwatale completed the work of five batsmen for only six runs. That too during just four overs.
The recent performance of Namibia’s women’s cricket team has been good.
What if a bowler bowls 24 balls and takes five wickets for just six runs? And this feat also in T20 cricket, where the batsmen keep trying to score runs. Something similar has been seen in the qualifier tournament of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. In this tournament being played between the teams of the continent of Africa, surprising bowling was seen during the match of Cameroon Women’s Cricket Team and Namibia Women’s Cricket Team (Namibia Women vs Cameroon Women). Namibian bowler Wilka Mwatale completed the work of five batsmen for only six runs. That too during just four overs. Due to this bowling, the Cameroon women’s cricket team was settled on a modest score of 30 runs. Then Namibia achieved the necessary 31 runs in 3.5 overs for the loss of two wickets. With this win, Namibia have maintained their unbeaten streak in the qualifier tournament. He has played four matches and won all four.
Cameron won the toss and elected to bat. But except opener Bernadette Mabida, no batsman could score 10 runs. If five batsmen were dismissed after scoring one run, the account of four did not even open. 10 runs came in his account from extras. In this way, the entire innings was settled for 30 runs in 15.5 overs. But a big contribution to this figure was the bowler Vilka Mbatile. He started bowling as a second change and dealt one after the other the Cameroonian batsmen. His best performance before this match was two wickets for seven runs, which he did against Rwanda in June 2021. Now by taking five wickets for six runs against Cameroon, he left his previous performance far behind. Apart from him, in this match, Kellyn Green took two runs and Sun Wittman took two wickets for 11 runs.
Four fours in the whole match
Chasing the target, the situation in Namibia also deteriorated. He dealt both his openers Adri van der Merv (1) and Sun Wittmann (0) for three runs. But wicketkeeper Yasmin Khan (11) and Kellyn Green (4) played unbeaten innings and gave the team victory. Cameroon’s bowlers also contributed heavily in this victory and gave 15 runs from extras. Four fours were hit in this entire match, in which three came from Namibia and one came from Cameroon.
