The Monitor :: Under-13 girls' cricket side competes in Namibia








Before leaving yesterday, the team's coach Solly Jawe told The Monitor Sport that the tourmanent is highly competitive and has attracted eight powerful sides from South Africa and Namibia.

He stated that although Botswana has just introduced the Under-13 squad, they expect the team to play better and win the championship. He said the Botswana Cricket Association hopes the tournament will help the players to improve.

He said since the young players will represent the country, it is imperative they participate in many tournaments for to learn.

With the preparations they had for the championship, Jawe said he was confident the players will do well because they have been training hard for the past three months. He said that during training, they played against boys' teams and the senior squads to test their tactical and mental strength. He said the young girls performed well and hoped they will hoist the country's flag high in Namibia. He warned other countries not to underestimate his girls.

The team manager, Cecilia Sebako, said the players had trained well for the competition, noting that although some players remained behind because they do not have travel documents, she was optimistic that they would leave an impression at the end of competition. Sebako said the team is expected back home on this Saturday. Teams from Gauteng Province and Limpopo Province in South Africa will participate in the event.
