The Slovak Cricket Team is a fledgling team which represents the nation of Slovakia in International Cricket competitions. They are not officially endorsed by the International Cricket Council and are therefore not entitled to participate in ICC Official events, however they do have an application to the European Cricket Council pending, which should see them granted Affiliate Status in the near future.[1] There is currently only one active cricket club in Slovakia, the Slovak Cricket Club, which is located in the small village Hájske, some 70 km east of the capital Bratislava.

Unlike in most other countries in the region, the team is almost entirely made up of native Slovaks.

Captained by founder Vladimir Chudacik, Slovakia have taken part in European Twenty20 tournaments, most recently in 2011, in Hungary, where they were knocked out at the group stage.[2]
