MATCH 3 REPORT (Wed 27 Sept) by Richard V Isaacs

While the result may state that Kenya Women continued their winning run over UK Armed Forces Ladies in this latest T20 fixture on the tour, there will be plenty of encouragement taken from this most historic of occasions.

Staged at the renowned Gymkhana Ground in Nairobi, which has hosted 62 one-day internationals, including two ICC World Cup matches in 2003, this was the first time in Kenya Women’s history that they have held a game there.

Electing to bat first on a sultry afternoon, Hazelle Garton looked in good form, hitting two crisp boundaries to get the scoreboard ticking over nicely.

However, an attempted drive looped off the outside end and Sarah Wetoto took a fine catch over her head and the skipper fell for just 10.

Connie Cant went shortly afterwards before Louise Worsfold (22 off 21) and Mel Vaggers looked to try and push the score along and added 24 before the former was bowled, having clubbed two boundaries in her innings.

The innings then began to falter as partnerships were given a good base but failed to go on – each of the six partnerships in the innings reached double figures but none went beyond 24.

Vaggers tried to keep the score flowing with regular singles but the lack of boundaries – only one coming between the ninth and 19th overs – was allowing the scoring rate to slow.

Eight from Georgie Cant and a patient 10 from Kirsty Gavillet kept Vaggers company in the middle overs but tight bowling from Sarah Wetoto (1 for 10) and Mary Wambui (1 for 23) squeezed the visitors.

Thirteen off Sylvia Kinyua’s final over did see the total pass three figures with Vaggers holding firm for an unbeaten 30 (three fours) while Caz Norris (11* off 9) did her bit.

Chasing 102 to win, the visitors needed to get off to a good start and they did by removing Mary Wambui for just 1, edging behind to Georgie Cant off Shiv Patel in the second over.

And she, alongside skipper Garton, kept the lid on the reply superbly with only a single boundary coming in the unproductive powerplay of 23 for 1.

But whilst the highly experienced Kenya captain Margaret Banja was at the crease, UKAF knew that much relied upon her and so it proved as she took about the bowling with aplomb, showing all of her class to skilfully guide her team home.

Alongside Queentor Abel (18 off 31), she added 54 off 58 balls and once yesterday’s hero was snared lbw by Garton, she upped the ante to blast her was to an undefeated 65 from 46 balls (11 fours).

With Kinyua (8*), she dominated their partnership of 47 in 32 balls to get her side over the line with some five overs to spare.
