Saudi Arabia was unanimously elected as the 39th Associate Member of International Cricket Council’s (ICC) during its full council meeting in Edinburgh. The Saudi Cricket Centre (SCC) has been an Affiliate Member of the ICC since 2003. The application for Associate Membership of SCC had been pre-approved by the ICC development committee during its October 2015 meeting, which was followed by a full application and an ICC inspection in March 2016.
Saudi Arabia made its international debut at the 2004 ACC Trophy in Malaysia and has since played regularly in Asian Cricket Council (ACC) tournaments. After finished second in the 2014 ACC Elite League, the team qualified for the World Cricket League for the first time. Saudi Arabia was due to compete in the 2015 Division Six event, but members of the team were denied visas by the host country, forcing the team to withdraw.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the country which has been elected as the Associate Member of International Cricket Council (ICC)?
2. With Saudi Cricket Centre (SCC) total how many associates members are there in ICC?
