In the second day of the first ever Street Child Cricket World Cup in Cambridge, Team Tanzania secured their place in the semi-finals to be held at the home of cricket, Lord’s on Tuesday 7. Sunday was a day of of high drama, sunshine and cricketing masterclasses from all eight participating teams.

Tanzania continued their impressive form, beating Bangladesh by six wickets in a ruthless batting display. In a spirited performance against India South, they were unable to overcome the tournament favourites, but batted with bravery. 

Against England, Tanzania bowled accurately to keep their opponents to a mere 24 runs. Tanzania then chased England well but just fell short of chasing England's total. However, the Tanzanian team, many of whom had never played cricket before this weekend, should be immensely proud they have secured a place in the semi-finals at Lord’s on Tuesday and have a real chance of winning.

Tanzania is represented at SCCWC 2019 by Pamoja Child and Youth Foundation, a Mwanza-based organisation which provides a sanctuary for street-connected young people, offers them creative outlets and works with guidance counsellors to deliver invaluable life skills.  

As a reminder, the Street Child Cricket World Cup unites street-connected young people from eight countries to play in their own international cricket tournament to challenge negative perceptions and treatment of street-connected people from around the world.
