Hilton Moreeng, head coach of the Proteas Women, thinks that the 2018 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa will encourage young women to play cricket. In T20 cricket, the Proteas will compete for the top prize as Cricket South Africa gets ready to host one of the largest women’s sporting events in African history.
The team is vying for their first piece of ICC hardware, and Moreeng believes the anticipation of competing in a worldwide event in front of home supporters is growing.
We’re thrilled to host the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup here in the United States, he stated. “As a squad, we believe it is one where we have a chance to get to the final. Once we arrive at the final, we understand that anything is possible.
He remarked about winning: “It would be a rewarding experience. For young people hoping to play cricket and one day represent their country, it would be something that would open doors. Being a part of so many World Cup semifinals has been a difficult path; yet, winning on home soil will be satisfying considering everyone’s passion and dedication over the years.
Moreeng shares the same enthusiasm for the highveld’s hosting of the first U19 Women’s T20 World Cup in January 2023.
In South Africa, “women’s cricket has developed in leaps and bounds,” he claimed. “Our nation is endowed with a wealth of talent, as well as coaches who help develop that talent through the system. It is great to see the youthful talent emerging and the future Proteas coming through the system as the U19 Women’s T20 World Cup approaches.
The Women’s T20 World Cup intends to be an exclusively African celebration of cricket, showcasing both the best players and the upcoming talent in the sport.
