Given all the factors against any organised sport in Myanmar that relies on imported goods, facilities and foreign investment, that cricket is even played in Myanmar is a cause for celebration.

The MCF have realised that creating the proper conditions for cricket will inevitably lead to creating a proper national team in the years to come, one which truly represents not just the spirit of Myanmar but the spirit of cricket.

To that end since they became ACC members in 2005 and the 97th member of the global ICC family in 2006, cricket has been taken to primary and secondary schools in Yangon. The construction of nets and then a ground for school cricket led to the construction of a full-sized fully-turfed ground from 2010 to 2011, at Saw Pong on the outskirts of Yangon.

Though unable to take part in any ACC tournaments during 2014, and playing only one ACC event in 2013, domestic cricket is being developed. Overall player numbers increased by 22% in 2014, with juniors’ involvement rising from 12,067 to 15,097. Coaching and Umpire numbers also showed a substantial rise.
