From icc-cricket.com:

Associate Members:

Associate Members are the governing bodies for cricket of a country recognised by the ICC, or countries associated for cricket purposes, or a geographical area, which does not qualify as a Full Member, but where cricket is firmly established and organised (37 Members)

An associate member must maintain the following criteria along with other administration requirements of the national governing body:

Have a minimum of 16 senior teams and 16 junior teams playing in a structured competition or competitions. Must have access to at least 8 cricket grounds, 4 of which must have a permanent pitch

The main reason for why they do not qualify as a Full Member is that they are non-Test-playing nations. Associates are eligible to play in the ICC World Cricket League. Top 6 associate members of league are awarded ODI and T20I status and are allowed to play against the Full Members.

In the beginning, only countries within the commonwealth could join.[2] These members were then joined by India, New Zealand, and the West Indies in 1926 and later by Pakistan in 1953.[3] In 1961, South Africa resigned due to their leaving the Commonwealth.[3] The Imperial Cricket Conference was renamed the International Cricket Conference in 1965 with new rules permitting countries from outside the Commonwealth to be elected into the governing body for the first time.[2] Any new member elected to the governing body could only be an Associate Member with the possibility of being promoted to a Full Member. The first Associates were Fiji and the USA.[2]Sri Lanka was admitted as a Full Member in 1981, returning the number of Test-playing nations to seven. In 1989, the ICC was again renamed, this time to...

Cricket is a sport that has been played around the world for more than eight centuries. In fact, there is written evidence of Prince Edward playing cricket in 14th century England. It wasn't until the 17th century, however, that cricket became a professional sport played in competition, and not until a hundred years later that it became known around the world.

Cricket is played by two teams of eleven players each, which take turns to bowl a hard-leather ball. At first view, cricket looks somehow similar to baseball, with players batting a ball and trying to score as many runs as possible. The differences, however, are many. For starters, cricket is played with a flat bat, rather than a rounded one, and players do not run on a square to score a point, but instead run forward in an effort to reach the opposite end of the pitch. If the ball is hit hard enough to go far, a player may keep running back and forth between the opposite ends, scoring one point every time they...

History of cricket

Cricket was played in Germany as far back as the 18th century and up until the outbreak of the First World War there was a thriving cricket scene, especially in Berlin. A close link existed between cricket and football and this was shown when the German Football and Cricket Federation (DFCB) was formed in Berlin in 1891. In 1912 the Deutscher Cricket Bund (DCB) split away but this did not last and after the end of the Second World War cricket was almost non-existent in Germany.

The British forces in Germany brought cricket back to Germany and set up leagues with teams of ex-pats from mainly Asian countries. It was immigration in the 1960s and 1970s that led to a more substantial interest in the game and led to the formation of a new Deutscher Cricket Bund (DCB )in 1988. Three years later the DCB joined the ICC as an Affiliate member and in 1999 this was upgraded to Associate status.

Since then cricket in Germany has progressed steadily to...

Cricket was invented in the vast fields of England, supposedly by shepherds who herded their flock. Later on this game was shown benevolence by aristocrats, and now has the stature of being England's national game. After a century now, cricket stands in the international arena, with a place of its own.

THE GAME

Cricket involves two teams with 11 players on each side. The captain who wins the toss decides whether his team bats or bowls first. If they bat first , their aim is to score a lot of runs and make sure the other team does not reach that score.

FORMATS OF THE GAME

Cricket is played in many formats , but the most popular are TEST CRICKET and ONE DAY cricket. In TEST cricket game goes on for 5 days, with each team batting twice - if time permits.

ONE DAY is the most popular format, with each team getting 300 balls to score runs. And the other team tries to outscore them within the same number of balls.

Cricket, the second most popular game in the world, is played by both women and men internationally. The ICC, International Cricket Council, consists of ten full member countries, 38 associate members, and 57 affiliate members.


According to the artifacts and documents found, cricket was supposedly discovered by the British in the early 16th century. With the exception of the United States, cricket is extremely popular in most countries that were previously under the British rule. People in the United States used to be engaged in cricket, until baseball came along. Baseball started to gain more popularity. Ever since, cricket has not been as popular as it was, and has not made a major comeback in the U.S.


Some of the most famous cricketers of all time are Chris Gayle, Sachin Tendulkar, Shahid Afridi, Malinga, Stafanie Taylor, and Mithali Raj.


With these cricketers making cricket globally famous, here are some of the basic rules of cricket....

New Delhi: The Supreme Court was on Monday told that the Justice R M Lodha committee’s recommendation for one- state, one-vote in BCCI would lead to “enormous politics” and pressure within the system of the apex cricket body. The submission made by Baroda Cricket Association to this effect prompted a bench, comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice F M I Kalifulla, to ask senior advocate Kapil Sibal for more elaboration as to how this recommendation would “generate” more politics in the working of the BCCI. “Can you elaborate what the politics will be,” the bench asked Sibal, who was appearing for Baroda Cricket Association and arguing against the implementation of recommendation for one-state, one-vote in BCCI.

The test was an initiative by the JSCA to encourage more non-cricketers to become members of the association, in the wake of the Lodha committee’s directive for more transparency in the functioning of the BCCI and its state units, including the induction of new members.

Here’s a look at the questions asked during the written examination:

With the changing dynamics following the revenue model, International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that the Full Council should push-out the United States Cricket Association at its crucial meeting in June as the federation has failed to work in collaboration.

“The decision to pass this resolution was not taken lightly by the ICC Board. Our focus throughout this two year process has been on the unification of the USA cricket community behind USACA to grow and develop the sport,” ICC release quoted its Chief Executive David Richardson.

The International Cricket Council says it has decided the full council should consider expelling the US federation at a meeting in June after the federation failed to bring together cricketers and the game in America which further didn’t sit well with global cricket governing body in Dubai.

However, considering the fact, the USACA website stated that it has nursed 32,066 players which include 1,100 cricket clubs followed by...

When we take up the globe to look at the cricket playing nations in South America, after a long hunt we realize there is just one – Guyana. The uncomfortable truth is that cricket is a sport which is predominantly played by a few nations who are also the full members of International Cricket Council (ICC) and are qualified to play Test matches.

ICC just recognizes 10 full members which can play Test matches recognized by the apex governing body of cricket. Unfortunately, cricket has never been able to reach fully to the South American nations.

No country in the region is a full member associate of ICC, with only Argentina and Suriname qualifying as associate members. Other than them, most of the South American nations are affiliate members.

Let us have a look at the exact state of the sport in South America.

Origin

Cricket is believed to have begun possibly as early as the 13th century as a game in which country boys bowled at a tree stump or at the hurdle gate into a sheep pen. This gate consisted of two uprights and a crossbar resting on the slotted tops; the crossbar was called a bail and the entire gate a wicket. The fact that the bail could be dislodged when the wicket was struck made this preferable to the stump, which name was later applied to the hurdle uprights. Early manuscripts differ about the size of the wicket, which acquired a third stump in the 1770s, but by 1706 the pitch—the area between the wickets—was 22 yards long.

Test Your Knowledge

The ball, once presumably a stone, has remained much the same since the 17th century. Its modern weight of between 5.5 and 5.75 ounces (156 and 163 grams) was established in 1774.

The primitive bat was no doubt a shaped branch of a tree, resembling a modern hockey stick but considerably longer and...

On Thursday night Afghanistan and Ireland were approved as Full Members by the International Cricket Council (ICC), meaning they have become cricket’s 11th and 12th Test-playing nation respectively.

In the run up to the decision, there had been much speculation that the two countries would be granted this status after having applied to the ICC earlier this year to have their status upgraded from Associate Members.

The applications were put to the ICC board in London on Thursday, which unanimously voted in favor of their upgrade.

Announcing the decision on Thursday night, David Richardson, the ICC Chief Executive said: “I’d like to congratulate Afghanistan and Ireland on their Full Membership status which is the result of their dedication to improving performance both off and on the field resulting in the significant development and growth of cricket in their respective countries.

“Both have clearly demonstrated they meet the new criteria and as such have...

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is the governing body for international Test match and One-day International cricket. It is currently headquartered at Lord's cricket ground. In March 2005, the ICC announced it would relocate its offices to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, in August.

Historical background

On June 15, 1909 representatives from England, Australia and South Africa met at Lord's and founded the Imperial Cricket Conference. Membership was confined to the governing bodies of cricket within the Commonwealth where test cricket was played.

In 1926, India, New Zealand and West Indies were elected as Full Members, thus increasing the number of test-playing nations to six.

After the formation of Pakistan in 1947, it was given test status in 1953 becoming the seventh test-playing nation. In 1961, South Africa ceased to be a member of the ICC on leaving the British...

Bowler Shaun Pollock bowls to batsman Michael Hussey. The paler strip is the cricket pitch. The two sets of three wooden stumps on the pitch are the wickets. The two white lines are the creases.

Cricket is a bat-and-ball sport contested by two teams, usually of 11 players each. A cricket match is played on a grass field, roughly oval in shape, at the center of which is a flat strip of ground 22 yards (20.12 m) long, called a cricket pitch. At each end of the pitch is a construction of three parallel wooden stakes (known as stumps) driven vertically into the ground, with two small crosspieces (known as bails) laid across the top of them. This wooden structure is called a wicket. Cricket has drawn many comparisons to the American pastime of baseball, with both playing with innings, a bat and ball. While a home run is the best hit in baseball, the "sixer" in cricket gives six runs on one hit.

Cricket has been an established team sport for hundreds of years. It...

3. Kenya beat Sri Lanka by 53 runs in Nairobi, 2003

Kenya who after the start in 1996 were becoming a decent ODI side. But what they did in 2003 would not have been imagined by any of the experts on the game. Not only did they beat a very good & experienced side like Sri Lanka, also managed to reach the Semifinals of the World cup. This was a first for any Associate member. Kenya managed a decent score of 210 from their 50 overs. For Kenya, Kennedy Otieno scored 60 runs with Vaas & Murali doing the damage for Sri Lankan team picking up 3 & 4 wickets respectively. Sri Lanka with its experience & long batting were favorites to win the game. Kenya led by leg spinner Collins Obuya, who picked up 5 wickets for 24 runs to beat Sri Lanka by 53 runs had scripted another greatest upset in the World Cup Cricket history.

Background Information

SOS Children have produced a selection of wikipedia articles for schools since 2005. SOS Children works in 45 African countries; can you help a child in Africa?

Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players on a field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. One team bats, trying to score as many runs as possible while the other team bowls and fields, trying to dismiss the batsmen and thus limit the runs scored by the batting team. A run is scored by the striking batsman hitting the ball with his bat, running to the opposite end of the pitch and touching the crease there without being dismissed. The teams switch between batting and fielding at the end of an innings.

In professional cricket the length of a game ranges from 20 overs of six bowling deliveries per side to Test cricket played over five days. The Laws of Cricket are maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the...

Afghanistan have been granted the Associate membership of the ICC to become the 37th country to get that status. The decision was taken by the ICC at its ongoing annual conference, which ends on June 29 in London. The nomination request had been sent by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) last year based on the continuous progress made by Afghanistan, especially in its cricket development.

"Afghanistan is the only country that receives the Associate membership in a short period of time in reward to the efforts Afghanistan made for the promotion of cricket," Dr Noor Muhammad, CEO of the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB), said on the ACC website. Becoming an Associate would mean higher funding and, importantly, more exposure for the passionate and cricket-starved players from Afghanistan, a war-torn country. So far, the ICC was paying $700,000 in annual funding to Afghanistan, which is now likely to rise to $850,000 based on the Associate status.
