Captain Mary-Anne Musonda was also outstanding with the bat.
“It was a great tour, with a lot of positives to come our way,” said the former men’s national team seamer. “I thought the bowling unit, in general, bowled really well. It got better and better. The batting was really good.”
He also praised his batters for showing composure chasing down totals.
“It was good for our batters to be the top two run getters of the tournament and obviously one of our bowlers to be the second highest wicket-takers. It was a great all round performance with a great positive.”
The ex-Chevrons star’s impact is being felt early.”Our game plan was to bat well up top and bowl a lot straight , keep extras down to minimum, i think the guys did really well.Keli had an outstanding tour.”
