On Thursday, March 31, the team will come up against Rwanda in their first cross-border tournament for the year 2022.
Sierra Leone’s Cricket Association is currently preparing the Women T20 squad to face Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda and Cameroun in the Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF) Women’s T20 International Tournament scheduled for March 27 to April 4, 2022 at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) Cricket Oval in Lagos, Nigeria.
After a short break on April 1, The Ladies Patriots will resume action at the refurbished Tafawa Balewa Square when they take on Cameroun in their final match of the tournament, which will run in 20-over format.
