Kuwait Cricket will be hosting the upcoming Asian Cricket Council’s Western region T20 tournament from Dec 15th – 22nd, 2018.
Kuwait will play host’s to teams from Qatar, Bahrain, Maldives, Saudi Arabia and Iran in the 6-nation tournament. Most of the team’s have already played in Kuwait earlier in 2018 in the ICC World T20 Asia “A” qualifiers.
The schedule for the tournament will be announced in due course of time. The 6-nation event will be a standalone T20 tournament just like the Eastern region T20 held at the beginning of the year.
ICC recently released the Womens’s T20I team rankings and all International matches played in the past 2-3 years were taken into consideration to provide an initial ranking to Associate member nations. If the same model is followed for Men’s T20I team global rankings as well, than the results of these tournaments will matter a lot to get a higher initial ranking.
