The Turkish national cricket team (Turkish: Türkiye Milli Kriket Takımı) is a fledgling team, which represents Turkey in international cricket competitions. They were granted affiliate status by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in June 2008.

In April 2018, the ICC granted full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Turkey and another international side after 1 January 2019 will be a full T20I.[1]


In September 2009 Turkey took part in the 2009 European Cricket Championship Division 5 in Corfu, Greece. This was their first international cricket tournament. Turkey recorded their first win in international cricket against Bulgaria[2] during the tournament, although this could not stop them finishing sixth and last.
