The interest in girl’s cricket is growing and it is a pleasure to see so many young ladies enjoy our national sport.”

BCB CEO, Neil Speight, said: “It is very exciting that Axis Capital have partnered with the BCB to help develop our girl’s cricket program. We have many avid young girls in our academy and youth programs that will now have a stronger opportunity to shine and progress in our great sport.

Sally Trott, Office Coordinator of Axis Capital, said: “Axis is very proud to be able to work with the BCB and BSSF to provide safe and fun opportunities for our girls to enjoy our national sport.

“The BCB worked with the BSSF last year to introduce a primary school league in addition to the existing Super 8 festival day.

“It is a pleasure to be able to reward and recognise the efforts of the MVP’s of the league matches. We are looking forward to the inaugural Axis All-Star Day at National Stadium on June 16 that will feature the top players from all across the country.”
