The African XI cricket team is a representative team of the continent of Africa and represents it during the Afro-Asia Cup.

History[edit]

The African cricket team originated when Jagmohan Dalmiya thought up the Afro-Asian Cup, which was to raise money for both the African Cricket Association and the Asian Cricket Council. [1] The first tournament was held in 2005.[1] The African XI team beat Asia XI by 2 runs, but lost the next match with the last match rained out.[2][3][4] Their winless streak continues as they lost to Asia XI 3-0 along with a Twenty20 which did not have Twenty20 International or Twenty20 status in the 2007 tournament.
