POTCHEFSTROOM, South Africa- Rwanda handed the West Indies Rising Stars a shocking 4-wicket loss in their first Super6 match at the JB Marks Oval in Potchefstroom.

Head Coach was proud of his team despite the loss saying “It’s a tough pill to swallow but the growth and development of this team have been our focus. As a batting group, we can learn from the loss today and we will go back to analyze how we play against slower bowlers. I still believe in these players, and I know they will develop into better players.”

Liburd added, “We still have one game to play, and we are going to continue representing the Maroon with pride. This team can hold their heads high as we head into our last Super6 match against England.”

It is no shock, where do we get our players from? Very likely Rwanda has a better female youth structure than we do
