We wanted to ensure that the player insights, the stats across fielding, batting, bowling are so well managed and are so much in depth that it can help empower our coaches when it comes to selections with all the data at their fingertips. We found it with CricksLab. And that is where the birth of a KCC mobile application on iOS and Android came to life.

These are serious numbers for our sponsors and partners as well and we want Kuwait Cricket to be a top choice for sponsors that want to reach out to the masses.”
