Rwanda’s women national Cricket team on Monday September 6, departed for Gaborone, Botswana, ahead of the forthcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers slated from September 7-20.
Head coach Leonard Nhamburo says the team has been in a training over the past two weeks as they prepare for the continental cricket qualifications which kick off on.
Prior to the tournament, Kenneth Bugingo, the national Women’s cricket assistant coach said that his team was able to prepare well for the World Cup qualifications as he anticipates an exciting campaign in Botswana.
“Last time we participated in the qualifiers as debutants but now we are going back with a different ambition. We know what we are going to do there. We have a young squad but with a confident attitude and winning mentality,” he said.“Some teams that we played during the Kwibuka Tournament are the same opponents we are going to face in the world cup qualifiers. That was a good opportunity for us because we were able to know how strong they are and what we need to do to give them a challenge. We have no plan to lose,” he added
