On the same day, two minnows of world cricket, Mali and Rwanda played in Kwibuka Women's Twenty20 Tournament in Kigali City. The result was a 10-wicket victory for Rwanda women in the T20I. Rwanda are ranked 30 in the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) rankings for T20I women teams while Mali don’t feature in the top-50 table.
They needed to chase just seven runs and they knocked off those runs in just four balls. Mali women had elected to bat first and opener Mariam Samake was the only one who was able to open the account, with just one run.
The innings lasted just nine overs. They lost wickets in the first (one wicket), second (one), third (two), sixth (two), seventh (one), eighth (one) and ninth (two) overs. They were blown away for a record low.
Four bowlers were used and all of them tasted success. Three of them bowled their spells without conceding a single run. Medium pace bowler Josiane Nyirankundineza was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/0 in two overs (2-2-0-3).
Marie Diane Bimenyimana, the medium pace bowler and leg-spinner Margueritte Vumiliya sent back two batters each. Another leg-spinner Veronique Iriho took one wicket in one over (1-1-0-1). Medium pacer Marie Bimenyimana (3-2-2-2) was Rwanda's only bowler who gave away runs (two).
Mali's innings saw two run outs, three bowled, two LBWs and the remaining three batters was caught.
The previous lowest T20I score was 14 by China against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in January.
