The Peru national cricket team is the team that represents the country of Peru in international cricket matches.

History[edit]

Peru gained affiliate membership of the International Cricket Council on 29 June 2007.[1] They have played in every edition of the South American Championships from 1997 onwards, hosting in 1999,[2] 2007[3] and 2014.

They competed in the ICC Americas Championship from 2008 to 2011.

Tournament history[edit]

ICC Americas Championship[edit]

  • 2000–06: Did not participate
  • 2008: Division Three – 4th place
  • 2009: Division Three – 4th place
  • 2011: Division Three – 2nd place

The future[edit]

After the tournament in 2011, ICC policy changed so that it was no longer part of Affiliate Membership Criteria to play in an international competition. As a result, Division Three of the ICC Americas Championship was scrapped, meaning that Peru – along with Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico and the Falkand Islands – was no longer included in any ICC-sponsored tournament.

There is no short to mid-term prospect of Peru being invited back to international ICC competitions.
