The Malawian national cricket team is the men's team that represents the Republic of Malawi in international cricket.

History

Malawi was previously a member of the East and Central Africa Cricket Conference, which was a member of the ICC from 1989 to 2003 and fielded the East and Central Africa cricket team in the ICC Trophy.

From the 1970s Malawi played regular international tournaments against other East and Central African teams, and occasionally touring teams from England.[6]

In 2002 Malawi participated in the Africa Cup in which 10 nations took part. They came last in the group, losing all 4 matches.

They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2003[7] and an associate member in 2017.[2] Their international debut came the following year in the African affiliates championship, where they came fourth. They participated in the equivalent tournament in 2006, Division Three of the African region of the World Cricket League, once again coming fourth.[8]

In October 2009 Malawi hosted the WCL Africa Div 3 tournament, beating all participants to win the tournament. They were promoted to WCL Africa Division 2 for the next tournament in Benoni, SA. They struggled at this level and finished last.

2018–present

In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Malawi and other ICC members since 1 January 2019 have been full T20I matches.[9]

Malawi played their first T20I on 6 November 2019, against Mozambique, during the 2019 T20 Kwacha Cup.
