The Moroccan national cricket team is the team that represents 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.[1]

In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Morocco and other ICC members after 1 January 2019 will be a full T20I.[3]

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]
