The Ghana Cricket Association is set to organize the 2022 Ashanti Region Senior Women’s T20 League, from 26th February to 13th March at the KNUST, Obuasi campus Cricket Oval.
The clash of the 4 top teams in Ashanti, saw Pomposo Royals lifting last year’s trophy after amassing 8 points in the double round robin in November 2021.
This year’s league which is aimed at selecting a squad for the International Women’s Tournament in Nigeria, will follow same format of last year, with matches scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays.
Pomposo captain, Rhyda Amanfo Ofori tells TalksenseSports, their ill practice will not hinder them from defending the title.
“There is a saying that ‘practice makes perfect’, getting the players, especially those at the basic level is not easy. This has not helped us to practice as a team but this will not hinder us from defending our trophy. Funny enough, I’ll not and will never tip any other team to win apart from Pomposo but who knows, may the best team win.”
Pomposo lost two matches last year, one to White Hawks and another to Royal Batters.
The Violets however begin their journey to the title defence against Tutuka Queens on Saturday afternoon, before a match up with Royal Batter on Sunday morning.
Ghana, among 5 other African countries (Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Rwanda and Cameroon) will converge at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos, for the Nigeria Cricket Federation’s Women’s T20 International Tournament from March 26 through to April 4, 2022.
National female Head Coach, Obed Harvey is certain of getting a very good team for the task ahead, as Women’s Cricket sees a pacey rise in Ghana.
