The next generation of emerging female talent will have the opportunity to push for a spot at the first-ever ICC Under-19 Women’s Cricket World Cup when they assemble this weekend for the annual Women’s National Under-19 Tournament hosted by NZC.
A 15-strong squad from each of the six Major Associations will compete in seven matches at Lincoln University grounds, each match serving as an exciting opportunity for young female players to advance their skills and play against the best in their age group from around the country.
With the ICC’s introduction of an Under-19 Cricket World Cup for women, NZC decided to adapt this national tournament three seasons ago from under-21 to under-19 in order to offer opportunities and preparation for the younger age group looking to compete on the world stage.
New Zealand will send a squad to South Africa in January 2023 to participate in the first-ever ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup.
Central Districts won the tournament in the 21-22 season, to keep up to date with this year’s results you can follow live scoring at scoring.nzc.nz. All matches played at Bert Sutcliffe Oval will be live-streamed on the NZC YouTube channel.
