There are 27 teams to take part in the regional qualifiers, with one team per region getting a ticket for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 and ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2020.
Hong Kong captain, Mariko Hill
“It means a lot to play in this tournament as there are high stakes for both T20 and ODI qualification. I remember when I started playing cricket in a grassroots program at The Hong Kong Cricket Club with my elder brother in 2007. Being the only girl, I wanted to prove the boys wrong about the preconceived idea of girls not being able to play a sport. And now cricket is a vehicle for equal opportunities, no matter your age, gender or ethnicity.”
