South African Cricket expert, Kenneth Masinga, has just arrived in Freetown to help the Sierra Leone Cricket Association (SLCA) consolidate uncommon gains in international competitiveness.
Coach Masinga is on a ten-month mission to Sierra Leone to help train local coaches for better performance in cross-border tournaments and to reorganize the Association’s school cricket structure where talents can be tapped to feed into the national teams.
Six highly competitive international tournaments lie ahead for this year’s foreign show. To make sense of these, high-performance training has remained ever vital to any call.
His coming has coincided with the preparation of the Ladies Patriots to participate in the Nigeria Women’s T20 International Series from March 25 to April 3, 2023 in Lagos.
Last year, Kenneth spent a month in Freetown, conducting trainings for the senior men’s side, the female squad, and the Under-19 team.
He was first appointed as Head Coach for the country’s men’s side in 2016 and became the first coach in such a capacity to win gold for Sierra Leone at ICC senior men’s level.
Meanwhile, the Under-19 Men’s team is set to commence workout as 26-man squad has already been named ahead of the ICC Men’s Under-19 Cricket World Cup Africa Division 1 Qualifier slated for 23-29 July 2023 in Tanzania.
