The Sierra Leone national cricket team is the team that represents the Republic of Sierra Leone in international cricket. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2002[2] and an associate member in 2017.[1] They made their international debut at the 2004 African Affiliates Championship, where they finished last out of the eight teams. They returned at the equivalent tournament in 2006, Division Three of the African region of the World Cricket League, where they had a major improvement, this time finishing as runners-up to Mozambique, and only just missing out on promotion to Division Two.

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

Future[edit]

In April 2010, Sierra Leone will take part in the 2010 ICC World Cricket League Africa Region Division Two, where they have the chance of qualifying for the 2010 ICC World Cricket League Division Eight in Kuwait.
