Kaduna State in the North West emerge champions as they beat Jigawa, Sokoto, Zamfara, and Kano to maintain a 100% record in that zone.

Edo State again proved to be too strong in the South-South zone after beating Akwa Ibom in the final match to leave them unscratched throughout the series.

The North Central region experienced the dominance of the ‘Old Lady’ Kwara state as team FCT, Kogi, and Plateau all fell under the onslaught of what could be described as an all-round display of proper Cricket.

The usual suspects in the South West continued their fierce rivalry for supremacy. In the end, Lagos State took their pound of flesh in the final against Ogun to reign supreme and finish champions in the zone

Finally in the South East, Anambra retains champions status and bragging rights after beating Abia, Enugu, Imo, and Ebonyi states respectively.

Earlier in the Week, Gombe State in the North East already had a playoff game to complete the zonal qualification series in the Boys category.

Worthy of mention is the donation of kit bags to all the states in the South-South region by the Zonal representative and Vice President of the Federation, Mr. Uyi Akpata.

This comes on the backdrop of another support system over the years to ensure the continuous growth and development of the sport in the zone.

All is now set for the Finals in Benin City in Both Boys and Girls category.

The best from the various States will be selected to form a zonal team in the finals.

Now the heat is truly on!

Girls Final…27th – 31st January 2021.

Boys Final….4th – 7th February 2021.
