7th NYG: Nigeria Cricket Federation Donates Equipment To Participating States

The Nigeria Cricket Federation has donated playing equipment to all 13 participating states, including hosts Delta, in the cricket event of the 2023 National Youth Games, which hold from September 21 to 30 in Asaba, Delta State.

Items donated are 30 junior batting gloves, 10 junior batting pads, five Junior wicket keepers gloves, 30 youth bats and 40 youth gloves.

The board also donated 18 packs of balls to ensure its smooth execution of the event, which will be played in three formats of one day 50 overs, T-20 and sic-aside.

“This timely intervention is in line with the first of the five key strategic pillars of development by the board of the NCF, which is promoting the game of cricket at all levels (male/female) through grassroots development in the six geo-political zones.

“This donation will ensure that participating states have standard equipment to facilitate the tournament and also take back home, which in turn guarantees that these states now possess the right equipment to continue training for their youngsters, especially with the National U-17 Championship in sight,” NCF said in a statement.

The NCF added that other equipment expected as part of the donations include more junior pads, helmets and thigh guards.
