Spreading the word in Botswana

Martin Williamson

Good news from Africa where it is reported that the Botswana Cricket Association is intending to introduce the sport to government primary schools countrywide.

The problems facing the Association were highlighted in the local newspaper.

“Students attending English Medium Schools have played cricket for a long time, and it was only last year when the sport was introduced in public schools. However, the programme then never kicked off as the development coach disappeared, and further, there was lack of commitment from teachers and students in selected teams.”

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
