The Bahrain national cricket team is the team that represents the country of Bahrain in international cricket matches. The team is organised by the Bahrain Cricket Association (BCA), which became an ICC affiliate member in 2001.[1] The Bahraini national side made its first international appearance in 1979, at a tournament with Kuwait, Qatar, and Sharjah (one of the United Arab Emirates). Its first appearance in an Asian Cricket Council tournament came at the 2004 ACC Trophy in Malaysia; since then, Bahrain has regularly appeared in ACC events. Bahrain has also made several appearances in World Cricket League tournaments, but was relegated back to regional tournaments after finishing fifth at the 2013 Division Six event.[2]
