The Kwibuka Women’s T20I 2024 is all set to begin on Thursday, May 30 with hosts Rwanda locking horns with Cameroon in the tournament opener.

Organised by the Rwanda Cricket Association, the upcoming edition of the Kwibuka Women’s T20 tournament - which honours the victims of the 1994 genocide perpetrated against the people of the Tutsi region - will be the 10th edition of the competition.

A total of 32 matches will take place over the course of this tournament which will culminate on June 8. 

A maximum of four games will be held on a given day with as many as eight teams participating in the tournament.

Apart from hosts Rwanda and Cameroon who faceoff in the opening game of the tournament, the other six participating teams are Zimbabwe, Malawi, Uganda, Botswana, Kenya, and Nigeria.

These sides are slated to square off once against each other with the top two teams in the standings at the end of the tournament set to clash in the final of the tournament.

All matches in Kwibuka Women’s T20I 2024 will be held at either the Gahanga International Cricket Stadium or the IPRC-Kigali Cricket Oval.

The previous edition of this tournament last year witnessed Rwanda beat Uganda in the final and the hosts will be hoping to successfully defend their title as they aim for their second trophy in the prestigious competition.

Kenya are the most successful team in the history of the tournament with four title triumphs, while the likes of Uganda and Tanzania have won it twice each.
