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.[4] 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.[5] 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.[6] India won the match by 9 wickets.[7] In August 2017, Thailand won the gold medal in the women's tournament at the 2017 Southeast Asian Games, going undefeated from four matches.

In April 2018, the International Cricket Council (ICC) granted full Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Thailand women and another international side after 1 July 2018 will be a full WT20I.[8]

On 9 June 2018, during the 2018 Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup, Thailand beat Sri Lanka by four wickets to register their first ever win against a Full Member side.[9] In February 2019, they won the 2019 ICC Women's Qualifier Asia, therefore progressing to both the 2019 ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier and the 2020 Women's Cricket World Cup Qualifier tournaments.[10] In August 2019, during the 2019 Netherlands Women's Quadrangular Series, they won their 17th win in a row, breaking the previous record of 16 consecutive wins in WT20I cricket set by Australia.[11][12] Thailand qualified to 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia after finished in top two in 2019 ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier.
