Maldives national cricket team malaysia tour 2016 17

The Maldives national cricket team represents the country of the Maldives in international cricket matches. Although they did not become an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council until 2001, they have taken part in the ACC Trophy on every occasion since its inception in 1996. They have never progressed beyond the first round of the tournament.


With the separation of the ACC Trophy into Elite and Challenge divisions, following their performance at the 2006 ACC Trophy the Maldives have since competed in the Challenge divisions in both 2009 (when they came 3rd) and in the 2010 competition. The 2010 competition marked their first victory in an international tournament, defeating Saudi Arabia by 1 wicket in the final of the competition.

As of 2012 Bazeegh zaka coaches the team; he is a UKCC Level 3 qualified coach. From February 2013, Nilantha Cooray is the National development cricket Coach.
