“I am so happy to be part of this camp and I think it’s very important. So I think I really have to work hard so that I make it in the team that will go to the World Cup.

“The training has been going well, like training with boys sometimes. It’s really helping because physically they are strong and its helping me to be physically fit because out there, obviously some of the girls are strong in terms of their fitness.

“If I manage to make the team, I will to do my best because there will be scouts from countries like Australia and New Zealand, and they may notice my talent” said Ndhlovu.

She was part of the team that took part at the Spar Diamond Challenge last November.
