The Surinamese cricket team is the team that represents the country of Suriname in international cricket matches.


Suriname became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council in 2002. Their international debut came in 2004 at the Americas Affiliates Championship, where they came last in the five team tournament. A big improvement came two years later in the new Division Three of the ICC Americas Championship when they won a four team tournament also involving Brazil, Chile and the Turks and Caicos Islands. This qualified them for the Division Two tournament played in Argentina late in 2006, when they came fourth out of five teams, which means that they will keep their Division Two place in 2008.

Suriname placed fifth at the 2009 Global Division Seven tournament and was relegated to Division Eight.
