“We are so excited to help launch this fantastic new tournament this summer. It’s going to be an incredible standard of cricket played at some of the best grounds in the world and everyone’s invited. Hopefully the competition will inspire many girls and boys to pick up a bat and ball. We’ve put together an amazing line up of presenters and commentators; there’s a completely fresh graphics look and some exciting new broadcast technology. We very much hope you enjoy the coverage.”
Naidoo is the founder of gsport4girls, SA’s first initiative dedicated entirely to promoting women’s sport.
