Cambodia applied for Asian Cricket Council membership, which was granted in 2012. The Cricket Association also plans to apply for membership of the National Olympic Committee.
Cricket in the former French colony of Cambodia is still a mainly expatriate game at senior level, but junior cricket is full of potential with a lot of local boys playing. Additionally, a structured cricket league is being planned in the country with the help of the Thailand Cricket League and that the National Stadium, Phnom Penh and Army Stadium will be available. Cambodia is planned to host the 2021 South East Asian Games and a cricket ground could be funded and built.
