The Cameroon national cricket team is the team that represents the Republic of Cameroon in international cricket. The team is organised by the Cameroon Cricket Association, which gained affiliate membership of the International Cricket Council (ICC) on 29 June 2007[2] and became an associate member in 2017.[1] However, the national side did not make its debut until 2011, when it played in the 2011 Africa Division Three tournament in Ghana.[3]
