England Under-19s enjoyed an unforgettable day at a South African township this week, as they continue the countdown to next month’s World Cup in New Zealand.
The squad travelled to the outskirts of Potchefstroom, their base for a Tri-Series against South Africa and Namibia, and organised an afternoon of games for local children.
As well as meeting local children and looking around the township, the players catching competition, and all the children were provided with tickets for a T20 match between Highveld Lions and Warriors on Friday night – which the England players will also attend.
Before then they have the last two qualifying matches in the Tri-Series, against Namibia tomorrow (Wednesday) and another day-night game against South Africa on Thursday, needing to take one point to guarantee their place in Sunday’s final.
