Cameroon will be up against Mali in the 4th match of the East-West Africa Cup Qualifiers 2023 at Willowmoore Park in Benoni on December 7. Cameroon have played one match so far in the tournament, which they lost while Mali are yet to play any match in the tournament. It is expected to be a good game of cricket between the two sides.
Cameroon squared off against Kenya in their last match, where Kenya won the toss and elected to bowl. On a good deck to bat on, Cameroon did not start as they would have wished for. They failed to make partnerships and just kept losing wickets one after the other. Only one of their batters had a score in double digits. They were bowled out for a trivial score of 48 runs in their innings. Kenya, on the other hand, started brilliantly with their openers playing attacking cricket. They chased down the total in just three overs and won the game easily by 10 wickets.
Mali had played against Rwanda in their last encounter, where Rwanda won the toss and elected to bowl. Being put to bat, Mali was really slow and sloppy on the pitch from the start. They had a forgettable match where none of their batters could get going, and within 12 overs of their innings, they were bundled together for just 30 runs. Bowlers from Rwanda had a brilliant match as they bowled beautifully, and similar to them, their batters did a good job as well. They finished the game in just 2.3 overs and won by 10 wickets emphatically.
