The Nigerian Cricket Association has applied for a special grant from the African Cricket Association to help expand the game.

"We intend to develop at least two turf wickets in the country," NCA president Kwesi Sagoe said. "The absence of the facility has held down our game for too long.

"There are a number of other countries also queuing for grants from ACA for different purposes. Ours is to develop grass wickets.”

    well Nigeria can be super power in cricket with its talented ppl, I think ACA would help them great deal by giving some extra grant, they are really deserved that. That would be great for cricket in Nigeria.
