Rwf2m into schools’ cricket
The Rwanda Cricket Association (RCA) secretary general Emmanuel Byiringiro told Times Sport that the tournament that got underway a week ago acts as a talent detection championship for national junior and senior teams.
“This tournament is good because it helps to identify potential players in schools. The tournament will last for three weeks and we believe it will leave a huge impact as far as the development of the game in the country is concerned.”
Six teams, split into two groups, have taken part in the tournament going on at Kicukiro oval. Kagarama secondary school, Apred Ndera and Remera Giporoso are placed in Group A, while IPRC Kicukiro, Lycée de Kigali and Efotec Kanombe are in Group B.
