History

In April 2012, Saint Helena competed in its first international tournament, the ICC Africa Division 3 T20 Tournament. It was held in South Africa where Saint Helena beat Mali, Gambia, Cameroon and Morocco. They finished in fifth place out of eight teams. The team had to raise £24,000 to travel to South Africa, making a five-day sea trip aboard RMS St Helena (1989) as the island did not have an airport at the time.[5]

In April 2018, they were drawn in the Southern sub-region group in the 2018 ICC World Twenty20 African Sub Regional Qualifier tournament.[6] Later the same month, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between Saint Helena and other ICC members after 1 January 2019 would be a full T20I.[7] St Helena won their first three matches in the Sub Regional Qualifier, recording victories against Eswatini, Malawi and Lesotho.[8] They finished the tournament in third place but failed to reach the Regional Finals.[9][10]

St Helena was drawn in Qualifier A in the African qualification for the 2024 T20 World Cup, facing seven teams in Rwanda in November 2022. The team and support staff were given free airfares on Airlink, the only airline flying to the island.[5]
