Kuwaiti Nationals opposing the expats reigning Cricket in Kuwait is growing and being a cricketer I think ICC and ACC are to be held

responsible ,thru media ICC and ACC always try to prove they encourage the Nationals where in real its not. ICC should introduce firm rule to let the Nationals take part and prevent the expats to represent the country. ACC officials

being of the same origin play important role to let the situation be as it is.. Kuwaiti Cricketers are amazed to see some who have brought disgrace to the reputation of Kuwait are in the board .The change of the name will not matter as The Kuwaiti Nationals will continue opposing expats who are benefiting on behalf of the Nationals and taking them for granted.though the Kuwait National team sponsored by Corporate Houses and play unofficially but we hope the day is not far when the Kuwaitis will get their right to represent their country a right which they have been deprived off by the expats

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
