Ghana registers victory as rain plays havoc in Div 2
In the only fixture played in a rain-affected Day 2 of the ICC Africa World Cricket League Division 2 event, Ghana defeated Mozambique by a comfortable margin of 32 runs at Sahara Park Willowmore, Benoni on Sunday.

Ghana batsmen felt the pressure early on struggling at 49-4 in 12 overs at one stage. A fine middle-order batting display by Lawrence Ateak (37) and Isaac Kofi (23) followed by an unbeaten 48 by Peter Ananya recovered the innings to 183 all out in 47.2 overs. Muhammad Zulfiqar was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3-43.

Mozambique saw themselves in early trouble losing quick wickets in the second and third overs. Syed Kaleem Shah fought back with a valiant 69 which was, however, not enough as the batsmen choked to tight bowling to restricted to 151 all out in 47.3 overs. Kofi Bagabena returned with figures of 3-37.

The other two matches between Zambia-Malawi and Sierra Leone-Swaziland were abandoned due to a wet outfield due to rain the day before.
