AFTER a long break brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lesotho Cricket Association (LCA) has finally began preparing for the implementation of the International Cricket Council (ICC) pilot project, which among others establishes hubs in Africa as a way of developing the sport from the grassroots level.

LCA on Saturday began training the Maseru district personnel that will operate the hubs to be established by the association in two locations in the capital city, at Lesotho High School and Maseru Private Academy.

According to LCA media liaison officer Clifford Molefe, the training was held at Mabathoana High School where a good number of participants attended.

Similar workshops were held in Leribe and Berea a few weeks ago.

LCA is to establish hubs in Botha-Bothe, Leribe, Berea, Maseru and Mohale’s Hoek.

The Leribe hub will be located at Hlotse High School while the one in Berea will be established at the Thakaneng Youth Centre. St Stephens High School will house the Mohale’s Hoek hub while a location is yet to be identified for the one in Botha-Bothe.

The project according to Molefe is fully sponsored by the International Cricket Council (ICC) through ICC Africa.

Lesotho is the first country to benefit from the cricket grassroots project in Africa. The expectation is that if the project succeeds in Lesotho, the ICC will expand it to other African countries.
