The 5th match of the ICC U19 T20 World Cup 2023 will take place between Pakistan vs Rwanda at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on January 15. The game is certainly going to be huge for Rwanda’s U19 team as they become the country’s first-ever representatives at a global cricket event as well.
The Rwanda team has great versatility with the ball which is also their strength, and Gisele will likely have six or seven other bowlers in her kitty. Meanwhile, Henriette Ishimwe is one of three other players who have the experience of playing in the senior team, alongside seamer Belise Murekatete and opening batter Merveille Uwase as well.
Meanwhile, Cesarie Muragajimana, Marie Tumukunde and Rosine Uwera will back the frontline bowlers with their contribution in the middle overs as well. Moreover, they have the seam-bowling all-rounder Gisele Ishimwe, who is the skipper and also an emerging force in African cricket, scoring 114* against Eswatini at the 2021 Africa Qualifier for the T20 World Cup.
On the other hand, Pakistan’s captain Aroob Shah has already become a familiar face in Pakistan cricket. She will lead the team with the ball and is expected to use her experience in the tournament quite well. However, she can trouble the opponents with the turning ball. Meanwhile, the Super Six stage is going to be a huge test for them if they reach the second face of the tournament.
