The Nigerian female cricket team has lost 2-3 to their Rwandan counterparts in a five-match friendly series in Kigali.

The series is the return leg, after the first leg held in Abuja in January where Nigeria won 3-2 against the East Africans.

The hosts won the first two matches played on Wednesday at the Gahanga Cricket Oval, while their visitors replied with wins in the next two matches on Friday.

Speaking on the friendly series, President of the Nigeria Cricket Federation NCF, Yahaya Ukwenya, said the friendly was to expose and develop the female team ahead of future engagements.
