ACC Tournament Schedule 2012

In what will be a busy year for the elite teams among ACC members, two new tournaments have been added to the regular schedule. The new events, the ACC U-19 Asia Cup and ACC Women’s Twenty20 Asia Cup, join the Asia Cup and ACC Trophy and ACC U-16 events to make a total of nine for the year. “These are exciting times for the cricketers of our region. The Test-playing countries are supporting everyone with their participation in yet another Asia Cup, the eleventh in all, in Dhaka in March and with their agreeing to play in an U-19 Asia Cup in June as an U/19 World Cup warm-up. Also with the Women’s Twenty20, the Test-playing countries are demonstrating great initiative by playing in China with the four top ACC women’s teams. These are the things that promote development across the region and create a sense of a thriving and united ‘Asia’,” says ACC Chief Executive Syed Ashraful Huq.

The ACC U-19 Asia Cup coincides with the ICC Conference in Kuala Lumpur at the end of June and thus the cricketers are guaranteed an august audience along with one that is likely to follow them on television too. The ACC Women’s Twenty20 is being played in the same stadium that hosted the Asian Games in November 2010. Brunei have withdrawn from competing in ACC events in 2012.
