Barbrah Mukankusi’s 50 off 54, Ritah Nyanyendo’s 22/21 (not out) and 79 bowling extras pushed Charity

Left hand batsman, Lelia Namaganda had 39/73 but it did not help Gayaza reach the target (202) and they collapsed with 11.5 overs to go. “We wanted to them out before they could get to the 50-run mark” said Mukankusi, Charity wicket keeper.
