Cape Town’s Table Mountain was the backdrop for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Captains’ Day, setting the tone for an exciting month of fast-paced and high-energy cricket as the World Cup comes to South African shores for the very first time.
The Captains’ Day which took place at Cape Town’s Waterfront marks the start of the eight edition of the World Cup which is now just six days away.
“It’s great to be here and we are so happy to qualify for this tournament. So many of us have played cricket for many years, but this is only our fifth T20 World Cup. We have never gotten a win, but we are looking forward to trying our best for this one” Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana Joty said.
The wait for Africa’s first Women’s T20 World Cup is nearly over as the 10 best teams in the world will be in action across three iconic venues, Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, Boland Park in Paarl and St George’s Park in Gqeberha, with the opening match taking place on 10 February, when South Africa face Sri Lanka at Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town.
