U-19 Girls At The Start Of Something Big

The inaugural ACC U-19 Women’s Championship in Chiang Mai, Thailand marks a significant step in the development of women’s cricket. “Having girls start playing cricket while they’re still at school really sets them up for the senior level and at senior level all the countries taking part are focussed on the 2010 Asian Games. Any one of these girls could play in that event,” says Shubhangi Kulkarni, Chairperson of the ACC Women’s Committee.
Saudis Show Their Mettle

Saudi Arabia have responded with élan to the new funding proposals set by the ICC and ACC and have composed a ‘Five Year Strategic Development & Operational Plan' from November 2008 onwards.

The Saudi Cricket Centre is to be congratulated on making an excellent first step."
