De Leede and Kalis will meet in the tournament in any case on the second day of play, on Thursday, May 5 at 2:00 PM (Dutch time). If qualifying follows, the semi-final will be played on Saturday 14 May, immediately followed by the (small) final on Sunday 15 May.
FairBreak is an international organization focused on “creating opportunities that promote gender equality worldwide, with cricket as the greatest resource.” This tournament is the first privately-funded tournament in women’s cricket history.
