Namibia's cricket governing body, Cricket Namibia, on Wednesday launched an initiative to incorporate several youth programs to ensure that local youth have access to more cricket games.

Cricket Namibia CE, Johan Muller said the initiative will introduce hardball cricket at the age of 10 and also introduce a girls-only team. "This competition will be played on a national level to expose and give opportunities to other cricket playing towns," he said at the launch in Windhoek.
