Accra, July 4,
GNA – Ghana’s dream of qualifying to the 2018 Cricket World Cup hit a snag
following their disappointing start in the International Cricket Council (ICC)
Africa qualifiers underway in Kenya.

Ghana lost her opening
game against host Kenya before succumbing to a 32 runs defeat to Uganda in
their second game yesterday.

The national U-19 team
had hoped to make amends in their second match against Uganda but only made 116
runs all out in 38.5 overs which wasn’t enough to eclipse Uganda’s 148 runs all
out made in 35.5 overs.

The loss has pushed
Ghana to the bottom of the league table of the 4 team competition with Kenya
and Uganda tied on 4 points each following their two straight wins while
Botswana is placed 3rd.

In the next fixture,
Ghana will come up against Botswana while host Kenya battle Uganda on Tuesday,
July 4 to end the first round.

The winner of the Group qualifies to the Cricket
World Cup next year in New Zealand.
