St Helena’s national cricket team has set sail for South Africa to take part in its first-ever overseas international tournament. Governor Mark Capes told players they were all ambassadors for the island.
The Saints may be the only team in the competition to play a warm-up match at sea: officers on the RMS St Helena have let it be known they were looking forward to taking on the island squad on the sun deck.
The team is taking part in the International Cricket Council Division 3 T20 tournament in Johannesburg from the 25th – 30th April. Teams are also expected from Cameroon, Gambia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Rwanda and the Seychelles.
Details should appear here in due course.
