SAUDI ARABIANS SHINE IN T20

The winning WPCA team, SCC T20 National Championship 2010

The four Associations of the Saudi Cricket Centre (SCC) have played out a T20 National Championship from which Western Province Cricket Association came through as champions. They beat Southern Province Cricket Association by 141 runs after making 245-5.

The five-day tournament was organized, says the SCC, “to introduce a new level of competition in an effort to promote an active participation and motivation of regional players at national level.” Players from this event will be taking part in the ACC Trophy Challenge in Thailand in December. A top-two finish there will see Saudi Arabia return to the ACC Elite Division.
