30 probables for the Kuwait National Team that will participate in the upcoming Asian Cricket Council T-20 Western Region Cup

01-Oct-2018

#Kuwait #Cricket Selection Panel (Rishi D Jayan, Ghayour Ahmed, Harshith Vora, Tahir Khan & Naveen Jayan) led by the Chief Selector & Vice President Mr Faisal Al Marzouk along with the Head of Council & Board Member Mr Mahmoud Bastaki have shortlisted 30 probables for the Kuwait National Team that will participate in the upcoming Asian Cricket Council T-20 Western Region Cup scheduled to take place in December / January.

The shortlisting of Kuwait National Probables was done after a process of 3 consecutive days of open trials (August) followed by two sets of back to back Tri-Series (September) that gave an equal opportunity for all registered teams and players at KC to come forward and demonstrate their skills & talent backed by performances in KC's domestic premier and desert leagues.

In a historic move, first of its kind by Kuwait Cricket, these 30 probables will now form the Kuwait National Squad of 14 players and the remaining 16 will form Kuwait "A" for the first time ever. If any of the 30 probables are unable to maintain fitness standards, discipline and or performances at domestic cricket during the national camp (starting from October) they will be subject to change with other deserving candidates in the waiting list.

The selection panel acknowledges that some notable names have been left out due to exceptional circumstances, such as narrowly missing out on eligibility criteria (ICC) or untimely injuries and travel arrangements, despite strong performances domestically. The selection panel has therefore suggested that those individuals will be allowed to train with the probables (once present and fit) in order to reach and maintain standards expected of national team players, demonstrate their commitment to KC's long term vision and also ensure that a wider pool of players suitable to varying formats remain in peak condition for future tours.

Kuwait Cricket wishes all the probables the very best for the upcoming national camp followed by international tours in 2018 & 2019.

2018: ACC T20 Western Region Cup
2019: ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers ( 2nd Round / Regional Finals)
