England cricket team

The England cricket team represents England and Wales in international cricket. Since 1997, it has been governed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), having been previously governed by Marylebone Cricket Club (the MCC) since 1903.[8][9] England, as a founding nation, is a Full Member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with Test, One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) status. Until the 1990s, Scottish and Irish players also played for England as those countries were not yet ICC members in their own right.

As of 3 June 2023

England and Australia were the first teams to play a Test match (15–19 March 1877), and along with South Africa, these nations formed the Imperial Cricket Conference (the predecessor to today's International Cricket Council) on 15 June 1909. England and Australia also played the first ODI on 5 January 1971. England's first T20I was played on 13 June 2005, once more against Australia.

As of 9 May 2023, England have played 1,060 Test matches, winning 388 and losing 318 (with 354 draws).[10] In Test series against Australia, England play for The Ashes, one of the most famous trophies in all of sport, and they have won the urn on 32 occasions. England have also played 779 ODIs, winning 392.[11] They have appeared in the final of the Cricket World Cup four times (1979, 1987, 1992), and winning their first in the 2019; they have also finished as runners-up in two ICC Champions Trophies (2004 and 2013). England have played 173 T20Is, winning 90.[12] They won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2010 and 2022, and were runners-up in 2016. They are the current World champions in both ODIs and T20Is, as of May 2023, and were the first team to hold both titles concurrently.

As of 16 May 2023, England are ranked third in Tests, fifth in ODIs and second in T20Is by the ICC.[1]
