Nigeria’s participation in the ICC World Cricket League Division 7 tournament, which takes place in Guernsey from May 17, was in the lap of the gods after it was revealed that players were struggling to obtain visas to enter the UK.
Speaking to Cricket Europe, Endurance Ofem, the side’s 16-year-old wicketkeeper, said that the British High Commission had not processed applications for visas. “As things stand now, realistically, we might not be making the UK tour but we can only hope that the embassy releases our passports with visas. The players are disappointed at the British High Commission but remain focused for the job at hand.”

Assistant Editor Andrew arrived at ESPNcricinfo via Manchester and Cape Town, after finding the assistant editor at a weak moment as he watched England's batting collapse in the Newlands Test. Andrew began his cricket writing as a freelance covering Lancashire during 2004 when they were relegated in the County Championship. In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill. He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities.
