With the ICC’s decision to grant full Women’s Twenty20 International (WT20I) status to all its members in April 2018, Singapore entered the global WT20I arena. Their debut in WT20I cricket occurred in the 2018 Saudari Cup against Malaysia in August 2018, where they secured two victories in a six-match series.

The Singapore Cricket Association (SCA) is dedicated to fostering the growth of cricket talent from grassroots levels to elite representation. In alignment with Singapore’s unique ecosystem, the Singapore women’s cricket pathway was established to offer a direct route to the Sunbirds, the Singapore national women’s team. This initiative aims to provide ample opportunities for young cricketers to realize their potential and contribute to the game’s development. Central to the pathway’s success is the provision of quality coaching and high-performance training facilities. This ensures that aspiring cricketers receive the guidance and support needed to excel in the sport and progress through the various stages of the pathway.

The pathway, aptly labeled “From Backyards to the Sunbirds,” is designed with four distinct sections:

1. Entry Level Participation: Encouraging participation and engagement from aspiring young cricketers.

2. Building the Foundation: Providing foundational skills development and coaching to lay the groundwork for future success.

3. Selection & Competition: Identifying and nurturing talent through competitive selection processes and exposure to high-level competition.
