ICC Twenty20: Nigeria, Ghana ready for big battle

Nigerian and Ghana will again rekindle old rivalries at the International Cricket Council World Twenty20 Africa Qualifier “A” after both teams recorded two wins from the Gambia and Sierra Leone respectively.

 

The battle for who tops the fourteam tournament will come alive at the prestigious Tafawa Balewa Cricket Oval in Lagos Tuesday (today).

 

 

Speaking ahead of the encounter, the captain of the Ghanaian team Isaac Aboagye has said they are motivated to take maximum points.

 

“We are not strangers to playing Nigeria and we are promising our fans back home and those who would be at the venue of a famous victory.

 

“Although I am aware that Nigeria are the home team and they also boast of some exceptional players such as: Saheed Akolade, Chimezie Onwuzulike, Dotun Olatunji, Ademola Onikoyi but in cricket names do not play the game and we are a hungrier side” he said.

 

In the same vein, vice-captain of the Nigerian team, Ademola Onikoyi, who was named the Player-of-the-Match against The Gambia, has promised to make their teeming fans and the entire Nigeria happy with victory over their archrivals.

 

“There is no gain saying that Nigeria/Ghana at any level be it football, cricket, rugby or any sports is very intense and on that premise we are not going to leave anything to chance. “It would be disrespectful on our part to underrate a team who won their matches just as we did and based on that we are taking Tuesday’s game like a cup final,” he said.
