The ACC has found Malaysia an accommodating host for many tournaments. And it was in Malaysia itself that the home side won its first ever multi-nation event, the 2012 ACC U-16 Elite Cup, in a gripping Final against Nepal. ACC Development Officer for Malaysia Aminul Islam notes that “the players have come mostly from private clinics and members’ clubs and from a few schools in Kuala Lumpur and Penang, so it is credit to the way that the MCA have brought them all together under one umbrella to give some support and structure to the junior cricket around what is a very big country.”

To create the next generation, a development program has been established to harness talent across peninsular and eastern Malaysia. Linkages are being established with prominent educational establishments. With a third of the country being teenagers or below, there is plenty of opportunity to further grow the game. Currently around 80% of the registered players are juniors.
