Kuwait Cricket will be hosting the Asian Cricket Council’s Western region T20 tournament from 27th Nov – 02nd Dec, 2018.
Kuwait will play host’s to teams from Qatar, Bahrain, Maldives & Saudi Arabia in the 5-nation tournament. All of the team’s have already played in Kuwait earlier in 2018 during in the ICC World T20 Asia “A” qualifiers. The 5-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 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.
