In chasing the score of 181 runs set by the Ugandan team, the Tanzanian key batters, Abhik Patwa(0) Jitin Pratab singh(15), Khalil Rehemtulla(8), Zamoyoni Jebeneke (0)Salum Jumbe(2) could not materialise on the chasable score on batting paradise wicket by giving away lavishly their wickets to the ugandan opening leg spinner bowler Muhammed Irfan who took 3 early wickets for 9runs in his 4 over spell taking tanzanian batters on the back foot.
