A limited-overs cricket tournament has been a feature of Australian cricket since the 1969–70 season, branded as the Matador BBQs One-Day Cup for the 2016–17 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. Three other teams have also played in the tournament for short periods of time: New Zealand's national team competed in several early tournaments, a team representing Australian Capital Territory participated for a brief period in the late 1990s, and Cricket Australia XI took part as the seventh team for three seasons starting with 2015-16. The current champions are New South Wales.

History[edit]

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. It was the first List A competition to feature numbers on player's shirts when they were introduced for the 1995-96 season.

Prior to Fox Sports' broadcasting of the domestic cricket competition, Nine was the host broadcaster. In India STAR Cricket shows the telecast with the help of Fox Sports. In 2011–12 Fox Sports broadcast all 25 games of the Ryobi One Day Cup live. The Nine Network became the rights holder once again from the 2013–14 season, primarily showing matches Live on GEM and simulcasting via Cricket Australia's website. There are negotiations in place with ITV to televise the competition in the UK.[3]
