Men’s and women’s fours and singles disciplines are currently being played on the sixth day of the nine-day 2010 Africa States Bowling Tournament being held at Alexandra Sports Club in Milton Park, Harare.
And, as was possibly to be expected, the South Africa Proteas sides—at the end of Day 5— were well ahead in two of the competitions: the men’s fours and ladies’ fours; level pegging with Namibia in the ladies’ singles and trailing behind Namibia in the men’s singles.
Hosts Zimbabwe had clocked up two points, the same as Zambia, South Africa and Kenya in the men’s singles, in which Namibia had four points and Botswana and Swaziland were yet to score.
In the men’s fours, Zimbabwe were also on two points, alongside Zambia, Namibia and Botswana, with South Africa leading the field on four points and Swaziland and Kenya yet to break their ducks.
In the ladies’ fours, South Africa and Namibia were both on four points, with Zimbabwe and Botswana on two points. Kenya, Swaziland and Zambia had not scored.
Two points each were logged by four teams: Zimbabwe, Zambia, Swaziland and Botswana in the ladies’ fours, with the Proteas leading the field on four points and nil returns from Kenya and Namibia.
The prestigious annual sub-Saharan regional lawn bowls competition continues until late morning on Saturday.
