Hosts Botswana have been readying themselves for the African qualifying event that will determine the 16th and final slot at the Under-19 Women’s World Cup, to be held in South Africa next year.

“There is a lot of excitement, because this tournament presents a massive opportunity for the winning team,” Sumod Damodar, Vice Chairman of Botswana Cricket Association noted.

“The Botswana Cricket Association have been hard at work for weeks, making sure that everything is in place for all the teams,” Damodar added.  

The teams are scheduled to arrive today, and familiarize themselves with conditions on Friday, before the tournament kicks off on Saturday morning.

“We are ready, and very excited to welcome the next generation of African stars to Botswana,” said Damodar.

“Our ground staff have prepared good wickets, and every fan of cricket is excited to see what happens over the next week and a half. The love for cricket in Botswana is growing all the time, and we are proud to be hosting a tournament with such a great incentive for all these teams.”

While Tanzania looks to be the pre-tournament favourite, given their consistency and their incredible development over the past few years, the shortest format of the game has always provided a chance for every team on the day.  

As the teams arrive tomorrow, they will know that they are one good week of cricket away from playing in an ICC World Cup. That should be motivation aplenty for every team in Botswana over the next week and a half.

Arrive, chances, Tanzania, paper, strange things…
