Four members of Wanstead Cricket Club’s women’s team will be representing England in the Indoor Cricket Masters World Series in South Africa next week.

Saba Nasim, Natasha Bourke, Nanette Kritzinger and Jen Liu will be in Cape Town for the tournament, which runs from 19 to 26 October.

“I am thrilled to be chosen to represent England in the indoor World Cup in Cape Town. I first started playing the indoor game in 2014 and it was a fun experience. The skills needed are different as it is fast paced and everyone has a part to play as each player has to bowl and bat in each game. I have learnt a lot about my indoor game this past year training with the more experienced players.
Hopefully we can do well and bring home the trophy! I know everyone has worked very hard and we have come together really nicely throughout our training days in Birmingham. I’m really looking forward to it!” said Saba, who captains the Wanstead team.
