Welcome to
Emerging Cricket

Our vision is for cricket to be a truly global sport.

Our mission is to inspire passion to grow the game.

Our growing family; a passionate volunteer community of contributors, ambassadors and patrons help shine a light on the inspiring stories from Associate cricket and beyond.

We pride ourselves on providing responsible reporting and informed opinion on the issues affecting the game outside its traditional centres.

We also partner with cricket boards and other like-minded organisations to help enhance development efforts.

How it started

In late 2018, former Cricket Hong Kong CEO Tim Cutler added Daniel Beswick and Nick Skinner into a Whatsapp chat group with a vision to change the way that the game beyond the Full Members was projected to the world. And the rest, as they say, is history.

World Cricket League Division 2 was hosted in Namibia during April 2019 and this was the first tournament we officially covered. As the only agency reporting on the event from each of the three venues concurrently, we provided live blogs, interviews, reports and commentary for live streams.

In the time since, the extended EC family has grown to three dozen, with more than half being regular contributors across writing, editing, social media and more.

While some other agencies have slowed down during lock-down period EC team’s output has increased, thanks to more passionate volunteers joining every month.

Exclusive content

We will keep everyone informed as we release more sections and features.

Recent additions include detailed team profiles, opinion pieces, regular columns and interviews.

We have partnered with the ICC to create a weekly #GlobalGame column every Monday covering the week that was in the Associate world. This is shared with the ICC’s 30 million plus social audience!

Our podcast launched in late 2018 with a series of interviews from the T20 World Cup Qualifier in the Philippines. Indicative of our commitment, we were the only overseas media at the event. Every week Bes, Tim and Nick discuss the news and events, featuring frequent special guests, from around the emerging cricket world.

Crowd-sourcing passion

None of this would be possible without harnessing the collective passion of people around the globe to contribute to the cause.

EC is 100% volunteer-powered and revenue generated from our Patreon creator page and other income allows us to continue to broaden the scope of our coverage across our website, podcast and more. Click on ‘support us’ below to find out how!

We are always keen to hear from passionate people who want to be part of Emerging Cricket.

We can use a whole range of skills so please don’t be bashful in getting in touch – writers, developers, lawyers, statisticians, graphic designers, etc!
