The International Cricket Council has confirmed that former skipper of Uganda women’s national cricket team Kayondo Naomi as one of the selected batch of the ICC 100% Cricket Future Leaders Programme.

The programme which is designed to support emerging female talent in cricket saw 40 women cricketers selected from 29 ICC member countries.

A total of 300 applicants from 45 different countries applied for the programme whose aim is to address the low percentage of women leadership positions in global cricket and form a foundation for female cricket leaders.

The selected female cricketers were split into two batches with the first batch where Kayondo Naomi was placed and are set to start this month.  Kayondo will be mentored in cricket coaching by former Australian Cricketer Lisa Keightley.

The 31 year old Kayondo was part of the Ugandan female cricket team that won the African Championship in August 2018 in Namibia.

Elsewhere, the national Lady cricket cranes were flagged off to Kigali for the Kwibuka memorial tournament which will kick off on 4th June 2021 and end on 13th June 2021.
