A New Era for Women’s Cricket in South Africa

The Proteas Women’s team’s success has not gone unnoticed by the government, who have pledged to support women’s cricket in the country. The allocation of R15 million over the next three years towards a professional women’s cricket league is a step in the right direction towards gender equality in sports. This effort demonstrates the government’s commitment to empowering women in sport and providing young and upcoming women in cricket with the necessary resources to develop and perform at the highest level.

A Collective Effort

The CEO of Cricket South Africa, Pholetsi Moseki, emphasized that the development of women’s cricket requires a collective effort.

Inspiration for the Future

The Proteas Women’s team’s remarkable achievement will inspire young women from all backgrounds to take up cricket and aspire to compete at the highest levels. The team’s dedication and hard work have shown that with the necessary support, women in sport can perform alongside the best in the world.
