ABUJA – FCT beat their Anambra counterparts by five wickets on Saturday in Abuja in the opening game of the 2014 Nigeria Cricket Female Championship for the Henry Abebe Cup.
In the game played at the cricket oval of the National Stadium, Anambra batted first to score 75 runs for five wickets in 20 overs.
But they could not defend better as FCT scored 76 runs for five wickets in 15 overs when batting, to take the game.
Other teams taking part in the championship are Rivers, Kaduna and Ogun, with the five teams representing the five geo-political zones of North-Central, South-East, South-South, North-West and South-West.
They had emerged as zonal representatives, after play-offs held last weekend in the zones.
Only the North-East could not hold their zonal play-offs as a result of the insurgency in the area.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the championship is being sponsored by Dr John Abebe, a former President of the Nigeria Cricket Federation (NCF).
The competition is in honour of the late Henry Abebe, a former chairman of the Edo Cricket Association, who died in 2013.(NAN)
