The Kuwait women's national cricket team represents the country of Kuwait in international women's cricket. The team is organised by Cricket Kuwait, which has been a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 1998.
Kuwait made its international debut at the 2009 ACC Women's Twenty20 Championship in Malaysia. The team failed to win any of its matches in the group stage, and also lost to Qatar in the eleventh-place play-off, thus finishing twelfth and last overall. Kuwait had greater success at the tournament's 2011 edition, however, placing fourth of five teams in their group and then going on to defeat Bhutan in the seventh-place play-off. At the 2013 ACC Women's Championship, where matches were played over 25 overs, Kuwait won only a single game, against Singapore, and were ranked last of the eleven participants. Outside of Asian Cricket Council (ACC) tournaments, the team also competed in the inaugural edition of the Gulf Cricket Council (GCC) Women's Twenty20 Championship in 2014. They lost to the United Arab Emirates, and did not return for the following year's tournament, owing to scheduling conflict.
In April 2018, the ICC granted full Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Kuwait women and another international side after 1 July 2018 will be a full WT20I. Kuwait made their Twenty20 International debut against Malaysia in the 2019 ICC Women's Qualifier Asia at Bangkok on 18 February 2019.
