Leandrea Louw- Defending champion Zebras Cricket Club once again pocketed the T20 women’s cricket league championships of the senior division while the Outjo Ladies clinched the junior division.

The three-day tournament saw teams such as Blue Waters 1, 2 and 3, the Zebras, Swakopmund’s Pro-Ed Academy 1 and 2 as well Outjo Cricket Club competing at three venues for the league title last week.

The junior league champions were the Outjo Ladies Cricket Club, with Blue Waters 2 in second place.

Senior winners were the Zebras Cricket Club while Blue Waters 1 came in second.

Estelle van der Merwe received the award of best junior batter after she managed 76 runs at an average rate of 25.3. Elizabeth Ndume received the award for best bowler, after she acquired seven wickets at an economy rate of 3.3. The junior all rounder of the tournament was Meke Mwatile who managed 42 runs at an average of 10.5, as well as one wicket with an economy rate of 4.7. She also participated against the senior ladies.

Yasmeen Khan won the best senior batter award, after she managed to acquire 83 runs at an average rate of 27.7. Kayleen Green was the best senior bowler after acquiring four wickets at an economy rate of 3.7. Wilka Mwatile was awarded as the best senior all rounder, after she managed 79 runs at an average rate of 39.5 and acquired five wickets at an economy rate of 3.7.

According to Hester Khan, organiser of the tournament and the director of women’s cricket in Namibia, they are very excited about the immense talent they discovered throughout the tournament.

“We’re working towards establishing a Namibian Cricket Women’s A-Team early next year where these newly discovered talents will be developed. Women’s cricket has grown exponentially over the last few years. We are excited to see more women join the sport. Thus far Blue Waters have established a development team for girls, with Outjo following them. I’m challenging Sparta Cricket Club as well as the Junior Coastal Cricket Academy to establish a women’s cricket team.”

Sparta will play host to the first ever Namib Desert T20 women challenge from 5 January - 10 January 2019. This will be an International Cricket Council sanctioned event.
