It’s always a pleasure to witness cricket in Singapore. The facilities are excellent, there’s a sense of history as well as forward-thinking about the city state, the domestic cricket is ever-expanding and through much of 2014 the national team was making significant progress. Having almost doubled junior playing numbers to 1,735 in 2012 and almost quadrupled junior involvement to 6,547 from 2011 to 2013, Singapore Cricket is riding an upswing of interest in the game. Senior playing numbers almost doubled in 2014. Domestic cricket has never been busier with many new teams joining the Association. Singapore holds the highest number of officially-sanctioned cricket matches of any non-Test playing country in the world. To put this growth in context, there were just 14 Singapore League fixtures in 2003. There are more than 200 now, of a very high standard at the top, across six divisions in the leading domestic competition the Griffin Kinetic League, as well as a 13-team corporate league.

The Singapore Cricket Association are actively engaging with the state in order to seek further state support and funding. They are emphasising cricket’s virtues as a character and team-spirit builder in order to do so, knowing full well that these will appeal to the administrators of the nation-state. A partially Singapore Sports Council-funded venture, the Singapore Sports Hub was completed in 2014. Among its many uses, the site is set for a 35,000 seat cricket stadium with a drop-in wicket which is curated within the site’s environs.

In a golden mid-year session Singapore’s men climbed up a division of the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League just weeks after winning the 2014 ACC Elite League. The U-19s look similarly poised to make a return to a higher level of competition having won the U-19 Challenge at the end of 2013.
