Turkey played its first T20I match against Luxembourg on 29 August 2019 in a 5 nation tournament in Romania.[6]

HistoryEdit

In September 2009 Turkey took part in the 2009 European Cricket Championship Division 5 in Corfu, Greece. This was their first international cricket tournament. Turkey recorded their first win in international cricket against Bulgaria[7] during the tournament, although this could not stop them finishing sixth and last.
