Humaira to lead U-19 team
DUBAI - Humaira Tasneem will lead the 14-member UAE Women’s team during the forthcoming Asian Cricket Council U-19 Women’s Cup to be played in Kuwait from February 1-10.
The girls have been going through tough three-week conditioning and training camp under watchful eyes of former Indian women’s player Kalpana Venkatchar.
The camp was held in at Sharjah Cricket Stadium and girls have trained hard to get ready for the tournament in Kuwait.
