The Jersey cricket team is the team that represents the Bailiwick of Jersey, a Crown dependency in international cricket. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2005, and an associate member in 2007.
Jersey first played international cricket against neighbouring Channel Island of Guernsey in the inaugural annual Inter-insular match in 1950. They won ten of the matches in a row between 1992 and 2001, before a run of five consecutive victories for Guernsey until 2006.
Jersey became an affiliate member of the ICC in 2005, and took part in Division Two of the European Championship in Scotland in 2006, losing to Norway in the final. The following March, they beat Italy in a three match series that they had to win to be promoted to associate membership of the ICC. They were granted associate status at an ICC meeting at Lord's in June.
- 2008, Jersey hosted Division Five of the World Cricket League in May. Jersey performed well and topped Group B after the group qualifying matches. Jersey then beat the United States in their semi-final before losing the final to Afghanistan. As Division Five runners-up, Jersey were promoted to Division Four of the World Cricket League.
- 2008, Jersey travelled to neighbours Guernsey in August to take part in Division Two of the European Championship against; Croatia, France, Germany, Gibraltar and Guernsey. Jersey improved on their 2006 performance, edging out Guernsey by one run in the final group match to win the tournament undefeated.
- 2008, Jersey travelled to Tanzania in October to participate in Division Four of the World Cricket League. Division Four proved to be a step too far for Jersey, as with a series of poor batting displays Jersey won only one group match, before losing to Fiji in a positional playoff and finishing sixth. On the basis of their sixth-place finish in this tournament, Jersey were relegated back to Division Five.
