Kenya and Namibia made it two wins from two in the ICC Africa T20 Championship after beating Uganda and Botswana respectively today in South Africa.

Namibia had the biggest win of the day, against Botswana. After winning the toss and batting first, Gerrie Snyman and Stephen Baard put on 86 for the first wicket. The partnership ended when Snyman was out having scored 59 from 30 balls and Namibia went on to score 149-5 from their 20 overs.

Karabo Mothlhanka was the only Botswanan batsman to reach double figures in reply as they were bowled out for 88, losing by 61 runs.

Uganda batted first after losing the toss against old rivals Kenya. Arthur Kyobe batted well at the top of the order, scoring 37 from 25 balls, but his dismissal sparked a collapse. In 3.1 overs, Uganda went from 49-1 to 54-8. Lucas Ndandason tore through their batting order, taking five wickets for just five runs in his four overs.

The lower order staged a minor recovery to lead Uganda to 81 before they were bowled out. Kenya had little trouble chasing down that target, completing an eight wicket win in 14.4 overs, with Alex Obanda scoring an unbeaten 44.

The other match of the day saw Tanzania bat first after winning the toss against Ghana. They were restricted to 100-8 from their 20 overs, which Ghana chased down in 17.1 overs to win by five wickets.

Namibia are currently top of the table on net run rate, and they will hope to extend that lead when they play Tanzania tomorrow. The other unbeaten team, Kenya, will also hope to remain unbeaten when they take on Tanzania. Botswana will play Ghana in the day's other match.
