BREAKING: Nigeria makes history, picks its first ever Cricket World Cup slot
Nigeria’s Under-19 Cricket team has booked the country’s first ever spot at the Cricket World Cup after topping the weeklong qualifying series concluded in Windhoek, Namibia on Saturday.
The Junior Green Yellow defeated Sierra Leone with two wickets in a tensed encounter that was the highlight of the weeklong run of victories against Africa’s Division one Cricket powerhouses.
Adams Ukwenya, the president of Nigeria Cricket Federation, has also described this feat as the most cherished moment in Nigeria’s cricket history.
“Our cricket has attained a new height that has never been reached and we are very happy for this achievement,” Ukwenya said.
