LADY Chevrons team analyst, Keith Kulinga, believes that their recent cricket training camp in India has given the players an insight into their weaknesses and what they need to work on ahead of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier set for Uganda next month.
Kulinga said that from his analysis, their major worry had been the middle-order before the camp, but this improved during the three-week training.
The Lady Chevrons will now travel to South Africa to round up their preparations with matches against the South African emerging side.
“We had a lot of takeaways from the training which we will share with the technical department.
“But apart from the lessons, I would say the camp was very positive and definitely we will have to make use of the lessons that we learnt from the tour and make a huge impact at the upcoming qualifiers,” he said.
The Lady Chevrons returned from India on Thursday and are expected to leave for South Africa in the coming weeks where they will round up their preparations with matches against the South African emerging side. Kulinga said the game time situations which the national team is being exposed to will be key in preparing the Lady Chevrons.
“Playing different opposition gives us an insight into what we need to work on and situations to expect, hence the more we play the more we get to analyse and work on our weaknesses as a team,” said Kulinga.
The Lady Chevrons will battle it out against Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania and hosts Uganda in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Africa Qualifier next month.
Two countries will proceed to the global qualifiers scheduled for next year.
