The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the fixtures and venues for the warm-up matches ahead of the inaugural U19 Women’s T20 World Cup. This historic event will see 16 teams compete in 41 matches between January 14 – 29, 2023 across four venues in Benoni and Potchefstroom. Participating teams will play two official warm-up matches on 9 and 11 January 2023 in four venues around the Gauteng province, namely, St Stithians College, Steyn City School, Tuks Oval and Hammanskraal Oval.
Braamfischerville was initially earmarked as one of the venues, but wet outfields caused by persistent inclement weather in the province in the last few weeks resulted in the matches being moved to Steyn City School.
