Cricket Federation shifts zonal elimination to August 17

The North-Central zonal cricket elimination tournament in preparation for the National Youth Games (NYG), earlier scheduled for August 3 to August 6 has been shifted to August 17 to August 20.

The Secretary of Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF), Kabir Yusuf made the disclosure on Monday in Abuja.

Yusuf said that the date was adjusted to give teams in the zone enough time to prepare for the event.

According to him, the zonal elimination is to select two top male and female teams from the zone to represent the region in the NYG.

“Other geo-political zones held their eliminations at the weekend but that of the North-Central which will hold in FCT has been moved to a new date,’’ he said.

The third edition of the NYG will hold at the University of Ilorin from September 7 to September 17.
