Kuwait Cricket is aiming to attract more women cricketers and is holding selection trials at Kuwait Entertainment City cricket ground on May 9 starting at 7.00am. The intention is to enable a team to be sent to the Asian Twenty20 tournament in Malaysia between July 1 and 13.

What I infer from this news is that it is very long way to go for Kuwait women's Team...... trials being conducted to select a national side 7 weeks before a major tournament.

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.
