CSA High-Performance Manager, Vincent Barnes, said; “This is the first time that ICC will be hosting an U19 Women’s World Cup, so naturally, there’s loads of excitement within the women’s camp, especially now that we are hosting the prestigious event.

Head Coach, Dinesha Devnarain, said; “This inaugural event comes with a lot of responsibility for us as coaches and players. As custodians of the game, custodians of our country, we ought to be patriotic and know that we can make the country proud.”

“Our aim is to do our best in the competition and take this as far as we possibly can. I want these young women to play the brand of cricket that we’ve developed and worked hard on, to go and showcase their skills and take as many learnings from the experience,” Devnarain concluded.

This is the beginning of what is still to come and we support Jemma, Kayla and Caitlin all the way, because without their input and grind to be better and to grow, this selection would not be possible.
