Message from the ACC Chief Executive

It is always a great pleasure for those of us associated with the development of cricket to witness the emergence of a new stream of players. The ACC U-16 Challenge Cup is an event specifically geared towards giving young cricketers an opportunity to test their skills in the most competitive environment possible. The best teams and their cricketers will go forward into higher levels of the game with confidence.

The competition is there to be won by those who best demonstrate their talents and I know full well from watching some of these countries’ other young cricketers just how much ability there is in Asia. It is up to all of us at the Asian Cricket Council to allow this ability to flourish. Flourish and mature through the years into being the best cricketers they can possibly be.

For the newest cricketers yet to make a mark in the cricketing world, this event could well be the start of something very substantial. I wish them and all those who help them develop every success.
