The Belizean national cricket team represents the country of Belize in international cricket matches. Belize has been an affiliate member of the ICC since 1997 but did not make their international cricket debut until 2004, playing in the qualifying tournament for the ICC Americas Championship. They currently play in the ICC Americas Championship Division Three.
In 2006, they hosted the first ever Central American Cricket Championship, where they won the tournament that also featured Costa Rica and Mexico. Later in the year, they played in the second division of the ICC Americas Championship, finishing fifth of five teams. As a result they were relegated to 2008 Division Three.
In the 2008 Division Three tournament, although they were favourites to win, Belize finished third of five teams. Later that year, they took part in the 2nd Easter Cup held in El Salvador. Belize beat Costa Rica and Mexico to finish in first place in the Twenty20 competition.
