At the invitation of the International Cricket Council (East Asia Pacific Office) CWOB participated in the ICC EAP Regional Women’s World Cup qualifying event in Sano,Japan.This involved competing against open aged women’s teams from Japan, Samoa, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.

CWOB also assisted Cricket Japan in the promotion and development of the sport in Akishima.

As a result of this tour an MOU was signed with Cricket Japan providing for internships for CWOB players to visit Japan for 5-6 weeks annually to further assist in the development of the game of cricket through school visits, training and coaching with the Japanese national teams and assisting with administration of the sport.Three CWOB players have undertaken internships with Cricket Japan.

In October 2014 following negotiations with the Australia Himalaya Foundation CWOB hosted a visit to Melbourne by the Queen Mother of Bhutan and specifically organised a skills demonstration at the MCG that involved young female players invited by CWOB to attend and also by Cricket Victoria. The Queen Mother is very supportive of empowering young women through sport and this day also involved young Bhutanese students studying in Melbourne .The Chair of CWOB also announced on this occasion that CWOB would be providing sponsorship support for the education of three young girls in Bhutan for a period of three years.
