The Sierra Leone cricket team is the team that represents the country of Sierra Leone in international cricket matches. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council in 2002.[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.
