Australian domestic limited-overs cricket tournament

A limited-overs cricket tournament has been a feature of Australian cricket since the 1969–70 season, branded as the Marsh One-Day Cup for the 2019–20 season. Initially a knockout cup, the competition now features a single round-robin followed by a finals series, with matches limited to 50 overs per side. The tournament is contested between teams representing the six states of Australia, who also compete in the first-class Sheffield Shield. Three other teams have also played in the tournament for short periods of time: New Zealand's national team competed in several early tournaments, a team representing Australian Capital Territory participated for a brief period in the late 1990s, and a select Cricket Australia XI took part as the seventh team for three seasons starting with 2015–16. The current champions are Victoria.

HistoryEdit

England was the first country to introduce a domestic one-day limited-overs competition with its Gillette Cup in 1963. Australia was the next country to do so when this competition was established in 1969–70. It has been held every summer since, under a wide variety of names and formats. It is a List A cricket competition. It was the first List A competition to feature numbers on player's shirts when they were introduced for the 1995–96 season and numbers were also subsequently introduced for the ODI series later in the season. In September 2017, former Australian Test cricketer Jason Gillespie suggested that Papua New Guinea should be added to the competition.[3]

Television coverageEdit

In 2006–07, the Ford Ranger One Day Cup was televised on Fox Sports. 25 out of the 31 games were televised including the final. Prior to Fox Sports' broadcasting of the domestic cricket competition, Nine was the host broadcaster. In India STAR Cricket shows the telecast with the help of Fox Sports. In 2011–12 Fox Sports broadcast all 25 games of the Ryobi One Day Cup live. The Nine Network became the rights holder once again from season 2013–14 to the 2016-17 season, primarily showing matches Live on GEM and simulcasting via Cricket Australia's website. There are negotiations in place with ITV to televise the competition in the UK.[23]

For the 2017-18 season, the Nine Network dropped its coverage of the JLT One Day Cup. All matches were streamed live and free on Cricket Australia's own website and app.[24]

It was announced on 13 April 2018 that from the 2018-19 season, Fox Sports will broadcast 13 matches of the tournament each year for six years on the new Fox Cricket channel. All remaining matches will be streamed live on Cricket Australia's website and app.[25]
