The Saint Helena cricket team has been an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 2001, representing the small and remote British island of Saint Helena. The team is an affiliate member of the African Cricket Association.

In April 2012, Saint Helena competed in its first international tournament, the ICC Africa Division 3 T20 Tournament. It was held in South Africa where Saint Helena beat Mali, Gambia, Cameroon and Morocco. They finished in fifth place out of eight teams.

In April 2018, they were drawn in the Southern sub-region group in the 2018 ICC World Twenty20 African Sub Regional Qualifier tournament.[1] Later the same month, the ICC granted full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Saint Helena and another international side after 1 January 2019 will be a full T20I.[2]
