History
First award2009

The ICC Cricket Hall of Fame "recognises the achievements of the legends of the game from cricket's long and illustrious history".[1] It was launched by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in Dubai on 2 January 2009, in association with the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA), as part of the ICC's centenary celebrations.[1] The initial inductees were the 55 players included in the FICA Hall of Fame which ran from 1999 to 2003,[2] but further members are added each year during the ICC Awards ceremony.[1] The inaugural inductees ranged from W. G. Grace, who retired from Test cricket in 1899, to Graham Gooch, who played his last Test match in 1995.[3] Living inductees receive a commemorative cap; Australian Rodney Marsh was the first member of the initial inductees to receive his. Members of the Hall of Fame assist in the selection of future inductees.[2]

There are more English players in the Hall of Fame than players from other countries. Only 15 of the 84 inductees played for nations outside England, Australia and the West Indies. South African Barry Richards played the fewest Test matches during his career with four, before South Africa were excluded from participating in international cricket in 1970.[4] Australian Steve Waugh, inducted in October 2009, played the most Tests with 168 in an international career spanning 20 years.

There are seven women in the Hall of Fame. In 2010, Rachael Heyhoe Flint, former England women's cricket team captain who led the team to victory in the inaugural Women's World Cup in 1973, became the first woman in the Hall of Fame;[5] the six other female members are Belinda Clark, inducted in 2011,[6] Enid Bakewell, inducted in 2012,[7] Debbie Hockley, inducted in 2013,[8] Betty Wilson inducted in 2015, Karen Rolton inducted in 2016 and Claire Taylor inducted in 2018.[9]
