The Thailand national women's cricket team is the team that represents the country of Thailand in international women's cricket matches. They made their international debut when they played, and lost, two matches against Bangladesh in July 2007.[1] The team's first international tournament outside of Asian Cricket Council regional events was the 2013 World Twenty20 Qualifier, where they placed fifth out of eight teams. The team was less successful at the 2015 edition of the tournament, which it hosted, winning only one match (against the Netherlands) to finish seventh.

In May 2016, Sri Lankan fast bowler Janak Gamage was named as a head coach of the team. [2]

In February 2017, Thailand played their first 50-over match, when they faced India in the 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Sri Lanka.[3] India won the match by 9 wickets.[4]
