Important Note :
As Kuwait Cricket Website is the leading web-portal in the region with all the cricketing features and there is a full dedicated team of professionals looking after the website, please note that an additional annual fees of  KD 50 will be charged from each registered KC team as team and player registration fees for unlimited player registrations. The concept of charging KD 5 extra per player beyond 16 players is wiped out.

Teams who are playing for the first time in KC Tournaments will have to pay KD 200 as a one time membership fee with Kuwait Cricket.           
We would like to sincerely thank the Kuwait Cricket Board led by the President Mr. Haider Farman as without his leadership, Kuwait Cricket would not be progressing at the pace that it is now and this unified approach of all teams, players and sponsors is bound to take Kuwait Cricket to a new level.

Looking forward to all the team captains turning up on
