The Brunei Darussalam Cricket Association (BDCA) had it’s first-ever cricket training camp for U-19 girls in June. 20 of its participants were involved in a series of basic cricketing drills.

ACC Development Officer for Brunei, Aminul Islam, conducted the four-day session and was very impressed with the “enthusiasm and spirit shown by the girls.”

“All of them took the game very seriously and also coped fantastically well to their very first cricketing session. They will have to train hard for the ACC U-19 Women’s Championship in November but I’m sure they can do well,” said Mr. Islam.

Mr. Islam went on to say that it was very encouraging to see that nineteen of the participants were local.
