“We are delighted that the qualifiers for the ICC World T20, 2020, are kicking off in Africa. The Nigerian Cricket Federation has worked extremely hard to putting the event on, and we wish the best of luck to all competing teams”

The action kicks off on Saturday, with the tournament opener pitting the hosts against Sierra Leone in the morning clash. The afternoons match will see Ghana and The Gambia lock horns.
