The Bulgaria national cricket team represents the Republic of Bulgaria in international cricket. The team is organised by the Bulgaria Cricket Federation, which became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2008 and an associate member in 2017. Bulgaria made its international debut in 2004, at the ECC Representative Championship in Slovenia. The majority of its matches since then have come against other European affiliate members of the ICC, including in several European Cricket Council (ECC) tournaments.
In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Bulgaria and other ICC members after 1 January 2019 will be a full T20I. Bulgaria played their first T20I on 14 October, against Serbia, during the 2019 Hellenic Premier League.
