The South African women's cricket team starts its preparations for the ICC Women's World Cup qualifier in Cape Town today.

They will assemble at the Ocean View Hotel in Stellenbosch today for a pre-camp ahead of the tournament that starts from February 18 to 24.

The team's manager, Zola Thamae, said everybody was expected to report for a training camp today.

"We hope to organise some few games to loosen up the players. We will also hold fielding and netting sessions," Thamae said.
