The gathering at Kuwait Entertainment City grounds

74 young women braved the heat of a Kuwaiti summer to attend selection trials for the ACC U-19 Women’s Championship to be held in Singapore in October this year. A few of the places are likely to be taken up by those who have already played women’s youth cricket for Kuwait, but Kuwait Cricket’s stated intention is to “hold open trials to provide a fair chance to all lady players.”

From the initial 74 this year, 20 will be given special training from which the final squad of 14 will be selected for the ACC U-19 Women’s Championship.

The young cricketers, daughters or sisters of those who have played or are still playing cricket will be trained by Kuwait’s three accredited women coaches, “and other experienced coaches who will provide the girls with all the technical know-how and match fitness to get them to their target,” says Kuwait Cricket.
