Turns out that this is (rather oddly) a 7 match T20 series....don't see many of those.

It was another comprehensive Namibian victory today - however the Botswana bowling is improving. Banyana Gaanamong got career best figures of 4-30.

Stumbled across a rather odd Pakistan warm up game where the national team played the Under 17s of the North West Territories men's team.....plus (weirdly) veteran Pakistan player Javeria Rauf.

The women completely overpowered the youngsters - as you would have hoped - but the most impressive individual performance came from one of the male players - Mohamed Sidat.

Shows that as a unit the women's team were better but, what I can only assume is, a fairly average male batsmen got the best of a bowling unit that included three players for the top 50 best ranked in the world.

Again we saw the gulf between Associate nations and test playing nations yawn today after Zimbabwe's second wicket partnership of 73 doubled the entire score of Mozambique's in the first game in the ICC Women's T20 World Cup Africa Qualifiers.

Sharne Mayers's 62 contributed to Zimbabwe's 198-3 whilst Mozambique got just 35.

Zimbabwe seem the team to beat as they completely smashed Tanzania in today.

In a more even game Namibia beat Uganda thanks to a fourfer from Irene Van Zyl.

Namibia posted 115-6 from their 20 overs and, reigning champions, Uganda kept it in sight - but regular wickets saw them fall 14 runs short.

Namibia are now top of Group B with Uganda in second.

Zimbabwe top Group A by some distance - their net run rate is 6.375 whikst second place Rwanda have just 1.079.

Despite no game being lost to rain, the South Africa v Pakistan series was tied after the two teams drew in the series decider.

New captain Sune Luus ended a poor series with the bat with a score of 80 to get South Africa to 265-6 with Pakistan matching them for the loss of 9 wickets.

Another mismatched series is in the offing as USA have beaten Canada by 10 wickets and 37 runs in the first two T"0s in that series.

Today's game was marked out by a decent 4-19 for 32 year old debutant Uzma Iftikhar,

Their win sees the USA clinch a spit for the Women's Word T20 Qualifiers in Scotland later this summer.

Canada are getting closer and closer- this time losing by just 35 runs chasing America's 116.

14 year old Lisa Ramjit's 3-11 was the highlight for the Yankees.
