Hosts Nigeria have won the West Africa Trophy after beating Rwanda in the final of the four nation tournament that also involved Ghana and Sierra Leone.

The triple round-robin stage saw the home side win all nine of their games, with Sierra Leone at the foot of the table with just one win from their nine games. Rwanda and Ghana finished with identical 4-5 records with Rwanda ahead on net run rate to qualify for Sunday's final.

Nigeria captain Sylvester Okpe won the toss and chose to bat first. The top four all fell cheaply, including Daniel Ajekun getting run out from the first legitimate delivery without facing a ball. Isaac Danladi and Ridwan Abdulkareem recovered things with 44 and 39 respectively as Nigeria scored 103-7.

Rwanda were then restricted to 86-8 from their 20 overs in their reply, losing by 17 runs. Joshua Asia was the pick of the Nigerian bowlers with 3-9.

Earlier, Sierra Leone won their second game of the tournament when they beat Ghana by six wickets in the third place play-off.
