The Four Nations T20 tournament will see hosts, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Rwanda all battle in a T20 format with all teams playing against each other twice before getting the two finalists and a bottle for third place.
After taking on Ghana, Sierra Leone will then take on host Nigeria the following day in the early kick-off before battling against Rwanda on October 6.
The team will again go face-to-face with Ghana on the 7th of October and Nigeria on the 8th.
All four teams will take a day’s rest before playing in their next set of matches. An all-West Africa tie between Nigeria and Ghana on 10th October will restart the tournament while Sierra Leone will engage Rwanda in the other fixture of the day.
