The purpose of this report is to clearly articulate decisions taken by the World Indoor Cricket Federation (WICF) on the 2nd October 2012 in regards to:
a) Underage Division Description,
b) Universal Date of Eligibility
c) Masters Divisions post 2016.
The first WICF World Cup was held in 1995 with just one division and since then the international calendar has grown to include teams from 12 and under boys through to over 45 men. This has often meant the tournament at which a division has competed has changed as numbers have changed. For example the 19 and under boys and girls division were regular competitors at the Masters World Series until 2005 when the expansion of that competition led to the move to the World Cup. The introduction of the Junior World Series in 2012 means that for the first time there is a clear pathway for players from 12 and under through to Open divisions and beyond.
This initiative now gives players across the world the opportunity to enter a pathway that can take them all the way to elite level. It now becomes the responsibility of the WICF and its member countries to ensure that this pathway delivers on its promise to produce the world’s best indoor cricket players and tournaments...
The first ever WICF sanctioned Indoor Cricket Test Series in India. An enthralling 5 match Indoor Test Cricket Series between the two National Sides.

Well Done to all the participating teams!
A new addition to the International calendar, the Junior World Series took place in South Africa. There were 4 categories participating in the inaugural tournament namely Boys 12 and Under, Boys 14 and Under, Boys 16 and Under as well as the Girls 16 and Under. This is the future of our sport and with so much interest in these age categories the future is looking bright...
