Affiliate Members:

Affiliate Members are the governing bodies for cricket of a country recognised by ICC, or countries associated for cricket purposes, or a geographical area (which is not part of one of those already constituted as a Full Member or Associate Member) where the ICC recognises that cricket is played in accordance with the Laws of Cricket (59 Members).

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

  • Have a minimum of 8 senior teams and 4 junior teams playing in a structured competitions
  • Must have access to at least 2 cricket grounds
  • Must be capable of raising in excess of $2,500 each year in income from sources other than the ICC

In order for an affiliate member to be considered for becoming to an associate member the national governing body must demonstrate that it has met the criteria for associate membership and must have also met the following playing standards within the last three years:

  • Competed in all relevant Global or Regional ICC international cricket competition for past 3 years
  • Ranked 1st, 2nd or 3rd highest affiliate in the region and
  • Have achieved one of the following:

    • 2 wins against any associate nation in 50 over matches
    • Twice been highly competitive against one of the top 20 associate nations in 50 over matches
