The Moroccan national cricket team was the team that represented the Kingdom of Morocco in international cricket. The team is operated by Federation Royale Marocaine De Cricket. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 1999[2] and an associate member in 2017.

In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, any Twenty20 matches played between Morocco and other ICC members after 1 January 2019 would have been full T20I, though prior to July 2019 Morocco had not participated in any T20I matches.[3] Owing to violations against the ICC constitution, Morocco were expelled from the ICC in July 2019.[1]

International history[edit]

Their international debut came in 2006 when they took part in Division Three of the African region of the ICC World Cricket League. They finished fifth in the eight team tournament.[4] Their most recent international activity has been in the ICC-Africa Division 3 tournament in Benoni, South Africa where the team finished 6th.[5]

Locations of all stadiums which have hosted an international cricket match within Morocco

Morocco boasted an ICC approved ground capable of hosting full internationals, the National Cricket Stadium in Tangier. It hosted a One Day International triangular tournament, the Morocco Cup in 2002, where Sri Lanka won ahead of South Africa and Pakistan.
