The Denmark women's national cricket team represents Denmark in international women's cricket. The team is organised by the Dansk Cricket Forbund, an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Denmark's first recorded international fixture came against the Netherlands in 1983. The team made its One Day International (ODI) debut in 1989, at the European Championship, and went on to qualify for both the 1993 and 1997 World Cups, winning a single match at each tournament. Denmark played its last ODIs to date in 1999, and has played only in minor regional tournaments since then.[1]

History[edit]

Denmark's ODI debut came at the 1989 European Championship, which they hosted, and placed as runners up in. They were also runners up in the 1991 tournament. They made two appearances in the World Cup, finishing 7th in 1993 and 10th in 1997. Their only ODIs outside the European Championship and World Cup were two series against The Netherlands played at the Mikkelberg-Kunst-und-Cricket Center in Germany in 1997 and 1998.[2]

Denmark returned to international competition in August 2013, featuring in a five-team tournament in Bologna (along with Estonia, Gibraltar, Italy, and Belgium).[3] They finished runner-up to Italy, winning three out of four matches.[4] In August 2014, Denmark played an international 20-over tournament in Berlin, with six other European teams. They won only two of their six matches (defeating both Gibraltar and Belgium by nine wickets), consequently finishing the tournament in fifth place, behind Italy, Germany, France, and Jersey.[5]
