|2014–15 Matador BBQs One-Day Cup|
A limited-overs cricket tournament has been a feature of Australian cricket since the 1969–70 season, to be branded as the Matador BBQs One-Day Cup for the 2014–15 season. Initially a knockout cup, the competition now features a single round-robin followed by a finals series, with matches limited to 50 overs per side. The tournament is contested between teams representing the six states of Australia, who also compete in the first-class Sheffield Shield. Two other teams have also played in the tournament for short periods of time: New Zealand's national team competed in several early tournaments, while a team representing the Australian Capital Territory participated for a brief period in the 1990s.

England was the first country to introduce a domestic one-day limited-overs competition with its Gillette Cup in 1963. Australia was the next country to do so when this competition was established in 1969–70. It has been held every summer since, under a wide variety of names and formats. It is a List A cricket competition.
