Andhra has competed in every season of the Ranji Trophy since making its first appearance in the 1953–54 season, with the exception of 1961–62, when it was absent. It falls under the South Zone of Indian cricket.
After the 2018-19 season Andhra had played 317 first-class matches, with 46 wins, 130 losses and 141 draws. In List A cricket, Andhra had played 136 matches, with 46 wins, 89 losses and one no-result.
Andhra has never featured in a Ranji Trophy final and has therefore never had a chance to participate in the Irani Trophy. In the 2007/08 season Andhra, captained by Mannava Prasad, achieved two wins out of six in the Elite Group of the Ranji Trophy, missing out of the semi-finals. In February 2018, they reached the semi-finals of the 2017–18 Vijay Hazare Trophy, the first time the team had got to that stage of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
The ACA has produced very few international players, which include spinner Venkatapathy Raju and wicket keeper M. S. K. Prasad. Many players from the ACA have played for India U-19s. The teams most notable players are:
