It does not take part in any international competitions, but rather in inter-regional competitions in the Caribbean, such as the West Indies' Professional Cricket League (which includes Regional Four Day Competition and the NAGICO Regional Super50), and the best players may be selected for the West Indies team, which plays international cricket. The team competes in the Professional Cricket League under the franchise name Guyana Jaguars.
In one-day cricket, Guyana reached the final of the domestic competition four times in the early 2000s, but the last victory was in 2005–06. They have won the KFC Cup a total of nine times – including two shared titles – which is the most by any competing team, Trinidad and Tobago coming closest with seven (including one shared).
The cricket team has been known under two other names – they were first known as Demerara when they played in the first first-class cricket game of the West Indies, against Barbados in 1865, and they retained that name until 1899, when it was finally changed to British Guiana (they had also played first-class cricket in 1895 as British Guiana). The name of British Guiana stuck until 1965–66, when the nation and thus the team changed to its current name. From 1971 until the mid-1980s two regional sides competed in an annual first class match for the Jones Cup, later renamed the Guystac Trophy.
The list of prominent cricketers who have played for Guyana includes Basil Butcher, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Colin Croft, Roy Fredericks, Lance Gibbs, Roger Harper, Carl Hooper, Colin Stuart, Alvin Kallicharran, Rohan Kanhai, Clive Lloyd and Ramnaresh Sarwan.
Guyana's main home ground used to be the Bourda ground in Georgetown, where they have played 131 of their 181 first class home games, and which has also hosted 30 Test matches with the West Indies. Other grounds include the Albion Sports Complex in the Berbice region, which has hosted 24 Guyana matches and five ODIs, and from 1997–98 Guyana began to use the Enmore Recreation Ground, East Coast Demerara, where they have played five games. In the last few years, Guyana have played nearly all their home matches at the Guyana National Stadium at Providence, East Bank Demerara.
