The Hong Kong women's cricket team is the team that represents the Chinese special administrative region of Hong Kong in international women's cricket. In April 2018, the International Cricket Council (ICC) granted full Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Hong Kong women and other ICC members after 1 July 2018 will be a full WT20I.[1]

History[edit]

They made their international debut in September 2006, playing against Pakistan in a three match series of one-day games to decide which country would represent the Asia region in the Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Ireland in 2007. They lost the series 3-0 after a series of heavy defeats, two by more than 200 runs.

In 2009, the Hong Kong women's team won the ACC Women's T20 Championship Trophy, then defended their title and won the tournament again in 2011, narrowly defeating China with three balls to spare.

In 2010 Asian Games, Hong Kong team lost to Nepal as they finished 7th in the tournament at Guanggong Cricket Stadium in Guangzhou.[2]
