The massive event will take place in a number of locations in Cape Town, including the Western Province Cricket Club, Claremont Cricket Club, Green Point Cricket Club, and Cape Town Cricket Club, as well as the University of Stellenbosch and a number of high schools nearby. The competition’s championship game will be held on March 20 at the renowned Newlands Cricket Ground.
Louis Koen, the captain of South Africa, expressed his optimism about his team’s chances of winning the competition. The Over-50s Cricket World Cup looks to be an exciting and fiercely competitive competition. We are confident in our skills and are eager to represent our nation on the international scene,” he stated.
Evergreen Living, the top supplier of senior living options in South Africa, will sponsor the competition.

Wilson added, “As a firm that is dedicated to supporting socially and physically active retirement lifestyles, we believe that sports like cricket play a crucial role in sustaining physical and mental health.”
Several cricket players from across the world visited Cape Town two years ago, and Phil Wilson said, “It will be lovely to have them here. This time around, we look forward to a full tournament with many exciting matches and moments.”
