Preparations are going very well and the players are offering up a lot of their free time to attend the different camps that the Union is running. The players are willing to put in the time and effort on their own accord to prepare themselves as best as possible and that by itself is already a win for me” said Andre Botha, Malawi Cricket Union’s CEO, who is a former World Cup participant with Ireland.
