MOZAMBICAN CRICKET ASSOCIATION


  8 Nations International Ladies Tournament 2016 2016-12-15  
 

Gaborone, Botswana


Something great is really happened in this part of Africa on Women Cricket progress and boosting. It is not  the typical “Development” word because Botswana Cricket did something for ladies Cricket between 2008 and 2015 by hosting 4 nations Tournaments,  is true initiative for Cricket development but in 2016 what they are doing for Ladies cricket is definitely overwhelm the word Development - undoubtedly. Probably ICC needs to relook on Africa Women Cricket boosting program and probably ACA in future needs to act as co-partner to such UNBELIEVABLE event.

Botswana hosted the Ladies T20 tournament where in a playing eleven, 9 players will be Under 19 and 3 players will be Senior per Country. A total of 8 countries are sending their teams, namely Host Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, RSA Invitation Team, Swaziland and Zambia. In resume, a Tournament with 3 Associates, 1 invitation team of Full member country and 4 Affiliates.

 

All countries supported their transportation costs and lodging (Special Discounted rates) and Botswana Cricket Association provided all other expenditure.

 

Mozambique occupied 4th Position out of 8 countries and top out of all participating Affiliate countries.  The experience had been excellent and there are lot of scope for Mozambique to learn further.
