Namibia Women will square off against Zimbabwe Women in the eighth match of the Capricorn Women’s Tri-Series 2022 at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek.
Namibia beat Uganda in their last game. After losing to Zimbabwe in their previous fixture, they turned the tables around to beat Uganda in a low-scoring affair.
Only three batters got into double digits as they were cleaned up for 68 in 15.2 overs. Sune Wittmann picked up a fifer and was well-supported by Irene van Zyl, who finished with three wickets as Uganda were bowled out for just 40 in 12.1 overs.
Zimbabwe, meanwhile, will lock horns against Uganda before clashing with Namibia on Sunday. In their previous meeting against Namibia, an all-round effort saw them defeat the hosts comprehensively.
Josephine Nkomo picked up four wickets as Namibia were bowled out for 41. Openers Kelis Ndlovu (11) and Chipo Mugeri-Tiripano (28*) then helped Zimbabwe romp past the finish line in the seventh over with nine wickets to spare.

Venue: Wanderers Cricket Ground, Windhoek, Namibia.
The pitch at the Wanderers Cricket Ground is a balanced one. New-ball bowers should get some movement early on, and batters have to be patient early in their innings before playing their strokes.
The temperature in Windhoek is expected to range between 7 and 27 degrees Celsius. There is no chance of rain predicted, so a full game should ensue.
Sune Wittmann, Jurriene Diergaardt, Yasmeen Khan (wk), Wilka Mwatile, Kayleen Green, Adri van der Merwe, Irene van Zyl (c), Dietlind Foerster, Merczerly Gorases, Sylvia Shihepo, Victoria Hamunyela.
