Capricorn Group renews sponsorship agreement with Capricorn Eagles


The Capricorn Group has announced the renewal of its sponsorship agreement with Cricket Namibia for a third year, continuing its support for Namibia's national women's cricket team, the Capricorn Eagles. 

The announcement includes a cash sponsorship of N$300,000 for 2023, along with gear, equipment, and other support. 

Capricorn Eagles beat Uganda.


The Capricorn Eagles won the toss and chose to bat first but Uganda had other ideas as they kept taking wickets. At one point, the Namibian team members found themselves four wickets down for 47 runs.

Ugandan bowlers continued taking more wickets and restricted Namibia from putting up decent partnerships.

It was a day to forget for the Capricorn Eagles players as their batting did not go according to plan.

And as Uganda kept picking holes in the Capricorn Eagles' batting more wickets fell to leave the host at 94 all out.
