The International Cricket Council (ICC) was founded at Lord's on 15 June 1909 as the Imperial Cricket Conference,[1] with Australia, England, and South Africa as its founding members. In the beginning, only countries within the Commonwealth could join.[2] These members were then joined by India, New Zealand, and the West Indies in 1926 and later by Pakistan in 1953.[3] In 1961, South Africa resigned due to their leaving the Commonwealth,[2] but they continued to play Test cricket until their international exile in 1970.[4]

The Imperial Cricket Conference was renamed the International Cricket Conference in 1965, with new rules permitting countries from outside the Commonwealth to be elected into the governing body for the first time. That year, Fiji and the USA became the first Associate Member nations.[2]

In 1981, Sri Lanka became the first Associate Member to be elected a Full Member, returning the number of Test-playing nations to seven. In 1989, the ICC was again renamed, this time to International Cricket Council.[2] South Africa was reelected as a Full Member to the ICC in 1991 and Zimbabwe was elected in 1992.[3] It would be eight years before the next Full Member, Bangladesh, was elected in 2000.[3] On 22 June 2017, Ireland and Afghanistan were granted Full Member and Test status, bringing the number of Full Members to 12.[5]

As of 29 July 2019, there are 104 ICC members, with 12 Full Members and 92 Associate Members. The Membership Committee will consider all future requests for membership – full and associate – against an objective set of criteria. There was previously a third level, Affiliate Membership, which was removed in June 2017 with all previous Affiliate Members becoming Associate Members.[6] The rule changes introduced a hierarchy, with two categories of membership: Full Members and Associate Members. Any new member elected to the governing body could only be an Associate Member, with the possibility of later being promoted to a Full Member based on ongoing performance in international competition.

In July 2019, the ICC suspended Zimbabwe Cricket, the first time this has been done to a Full Member side.[7][8]

Full MembersEdit

Full Members are the governing bodies for cricket in a country or a group of associated countries representing a geographical area. All Full Members have a right to send one representative team to play official Test matches and have full voting rights at meetings of the ICC. Also, all Full Member nations are automatically qualified to play ODIs and T20Is.[2] The West Indies cricket team does not represent one country, but rather an amalgamation of more than 15 countries and territories from the Caribbean. The English Cricket team represents both England and Wales and the Ireland cricket team represents all of the island of Ireland.

Among these 12 nations, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Ireland have played as associate nations under the ICC before becoming Full Members. Currently, Zimbabwe is suspended by the ICC.

Associate MembersEdit

Associate Members are countries where cricket is firmly established and organised but do not qualify for Full Membership.[2] There are 92 Associate Members.[9]

All Associates are eligible to play in the ICC World Cricket League, a series of international one-day cricket administered by the ICC.[10] There is also an ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier that works as a qualification process for ICC T20 World Cup that occurred every two years (until 2016, the next T20 World Cup is in 2020). Until April 2018, only the qualified teams were awarded Twenty20 International status.[11] In April 2018, the ICC announced T20I status for all its members from 1 July 2018 for women's game and from 1 January 2019 for men's game.[12]

In addition to key administrative requirements of the national governing body, an Associate Member must:[13]

  • have a minimum of 16 senior teams and 16 junior teams playing in a structured competition or competitions;
  • have access to at least 8 cricket grounds, 4 of which must have a permanent pitch.

Associate Members with ODI statusEdit

ICC grants One-Day International status to its Associate Members based on their success in the World Cricket League.

The Associate teams who currently hold ODI status are:

Team Governing body ODI status since Region Current ODI Ranking
  Namibia Namibia Cricket Board 2019[96] Africa
    Nepal Cricket Association of Nepal 2018[2] Asia 15
  Netherlands Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Bond 2018[2] Europe 13
  Oman Oman Cricket Board 2019[97] Asia
  Papua New Guinea Cricket PNG 2019[98] East Asia-Pacific 17
  Scotland Cricket Scotland 2018[2] Europe 14
  United Arab Emirates Emirates Cricket Board 2018[2] Asia 16
  United States USA Cricket 2019 [99] Americas

In winning the 2015–17 World Cricket League, Netherlands ensured they would become an ODI team at the end of the 2018 World Cup Qualifier. The three other highest placed associates in this qualifier (UAE, Scotland and Nepal) joined them. In June 2018, Scotland and UAE were added to the main ODI rankings list, with Nepal joining them in January 2019.[100] Netherlands will be added once they have played enough games to gain a meaningful rating.

Four additional teams gained ODI status after the conclusion of the World Cricket League Division Two tournament in April 2019.[101] These teams were Namibia, Oman, Papua New Guinea and USA.[101]

Associate Members with T20I statusEdit

In April 2018, the ICC announced T20I status for all its 105 Members from 1 January 2019. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between ICC Members after 1 January 2019 will be full T20I.[102][12]

Former membersEdit

There are five countries who were previously members of the International Cricket Council (associate or affiliate), but had their memberships revoked due to various reasons.

Country Region ICC membership period
  Morocco Africa 1999-2019[103]
