NEWSROOM (ADV) – Zimbabwe Cricket will this year host the African Regional Qualifying Tournament, a pathway to the ICC Women’s World Cup set for next year.

The ICC qualifiers will be held from 6-19 May at various venues in Harare.

The qualifiers will see Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Uganda, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria and Sierra Leon battle for the two available spots for the world cup proper.

Zimbabwe will be tipped to qualify given their imposing status on the African continent in the women’s version of the sport.

Announcing the news, ZC Managing Director, Givemore Makoni said the qualifiers present an opportunity for the country to show its love for the game and provide the hospitable welcome to the world.

The country successfully hosted the men’s World Cup Qualifiers and will, be hoping to take a leaf from the event.

However, captain of the women’s side, Marry-Anne Musonda is of the belief that more games are needed if they are to have any realistic chances of qualifying.

Zimbabwe Women’s side has been making significant strides in their game and recently they defeated Namibia 5-0 in a series played in Windhoek.
