Harare - South Africa’s Women’s Cricket captain Dane van Niekerk says playing at the 2022 Cricket World Cup in New Zealand will be memorable.

With South Africa being one of five sides that have already sealed a place at the tournament, van Niekerk is eager for the first ball to be bowled.

"Any time you get the chance to play for your country and wear the Proteas on your jersey it’s an honour. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity before to play at a Women’s Cricket World Cup, but every new time is more special than the last.”

She went on: "Every young cricket player dreams of playing for their country at the highest level, and we are definitely looking forward to the CWC22 in New Zealand.” 

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday released a full schedule of the Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022.

New Zealand, Australia, England, South Africa and India have already qualified for the World Cup with the three remaining teams to be decided at the ICC qualifying tournament that will take place from June 26 to July 10, 2021 in Sri Lanka.

Eight of the world’s best cricket nations will go head-to-head in Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin in a total of 31 matches played over 31 action-packed days between March 4 and April 3, 2022.

The eight-team round-robin format will see all teams play each other, with the top four teams qualifying for the semi-finals.
