Nigeria Intensifies Preparation For 8th Kwibuka Tournament In Rwanda

Nigeria Women Cricket team

May 23, (THEWILL) – Nigeria’s senior women’s cricket team has ramped up its preparation for the 8th Kwibuka Tournament, which will take place in Rwanda from June 9 to 20 at the Gahanga International Cricket Stadium and the IPRC Cricket Ground.

The Nigerian Cricket Association has named Leke Oyede as the team’s new head coach, and he has called eighteen players to Benin for residential training and has begun playing friendly matches to keep them in shape for the event.

In March, Nigeria lost to Rwanda in the finals of the T20 Women Cricket International event in Lagos. Countries such as Ghana, Nigeria, Germany, Brazil, Kenya, Botswana, Tanzania, Uganda, Sierra Leone, and Zimbabwe will compete for the trophy, which is part of ceremonies commemorating the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

Kenya won the 2021 tournament, which had only five countries competing.
