Rwanda and Seychelles face off in final play offs

Newcomers Seychelles to face favorites, Rwanda in the finals of the ICC Africa Div 3.
Rwanda and Seychelles secured a place in the final of the ICC Africa Division 3 after recording wins on Saturday, with the winner of this match set to take a step closer to the ICC World Twenty20 2012.

In the match on Achimota Field A, Rwanda continued their winning ways with a comfortable win over Cameroon. They managed to bowl out Cameroon for a dismal 30 all out.

Rwanda thrashed Cameroon by eight wickets, dismissing Cameroon for just 30 all out, with Andre Kayitera and Suhabhasis Samaz both taking three wickets each.

In other action of the morning, Gambia played Mali. Winning the toss, Gambia inserted Mali for whom only Habibou N"Diaye put up any resistance as it made 67 all out. He managed to score 16 runs. Destroyer in chief, for Gambia was David Prince Johnson with 4-5.

Gambia comfortably reached its target, as Gabriel Njie scored 17 runs and was supported by George Greywood with 18 off 18 balls. The only bowler to provide some concern for the Gambians was Mohamed Toure who got 4-25. Unfortunately this was not enough to stem the flow of runs.

Gambia passed the target in the 12th over and secured themselves a place against Cameroon in the fifth place play offs.

In the final pool game of the Division 3, Seychelles were asked to bat by the Moroccans. After been in early trouble at 7-3, a steady recovery lead to the newcomers set a very competitive score of 164-4. This was largely due to the 55 off 75 balls by Harkir Kamalan. His captain Sandesh Kunder got a quick fire 46 off 38.

Morocco was eventually dismissed for 103 all out, with Rachid Harmaoui top scoring with 22.
