The Under-19 Lady Chevrons are early next year set to participate in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa with the team having already established camp in Harare.
Under the guidance of head coach Trevor Phiri and bowling mentor Trevor Garwe, the Zimbabwean squad were joined by Kelis Ndhlovu, an all-rounder that got back into the country with the senior Lady Chevrons from a tour of duty in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Ndhlovu (16) had a five-star performance in UAE as she won a Player of the Match accolade in a solid campaign for Gary Bent’s side.
The 2023 ICC U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup will be the first ever edition of its kind and it will have 16 teams with 11 full member nations which are, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and Zimbabwe.
This saw these teams qualifying for the tournament automatically.
Zimbabwe is placed in Group B with England, Pakistan and Rwanda.
The tournament will run from 14 to 29 January in Benoni and Potchefstroom.
