Nigeria to stage women's cricket championship

  • Nigeria is making arrangements to stage a national women's cricket championship in October, an official said.

    Musa Ehizoje, spokesperson for the Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF), told reporters on Tuesday that five teams would participate in the event scheduled to take place in Abuja, the nation's capital. The teams will be winners in the various zonal championships.

    He said the restive northeast region will not participate due to insecurity in that zone. (Source: IANS)
