NCF Announces Final Team For 2020 ACA CUP C/ship

The Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF) has announced the final list of players for the 2020 Africa Cricket Association Cup Championship in Kenya.

Joshua Ayannaike, for the first time, will lead the the 14-man Yellow team as captain while Sylvester Okpe retains his position as vice captain.

The team is finely balanced between youth and experience as the country looks to produce a formidable team for the tournament.

The duo of Pradeep Chaudhary and Rasheed Abolarin will make their international debut for the team while Sylvester Okpe and Suleimon Runsewe will join the team after their exploits in the U-19 world cup in South Africa.

Nigeria and Ghana qualified for the tournament during the West Africa qualifiers held in Lagos from the 25th to 30th April 2018.
