Welcome to the World Indoor Cricket Federation Website

Welcome to the World Indoor Cricket Federation Website. Indoor Cricket as it is now known, was started in Australia in 1984 after it was brought over from Germany. The nets were introduced as only difference and this successful formula has grown from strength to stength in various countries around the world. Played in countries like Australia, New Zealand, England, South Africa, India, Sri Lanka and few other countries, this great sport has its various levels from social matches to league matches to Provincial or State tournaments all the way up to international matches including World Cups and Masters Series.

The growth of this sport has led to a Junior World Series being added to the international calendar and in 2012 was first Junior World Series hosted in South Africa.

Indoor Cricket Junior World Series - Australia 2015

Australia has continued their stronghold over the Indoor Cricket sphere with a clean sweep of the recent Junior World Series in Brisbane.

Coming in as the heavy favourites in each division, Australia's squads in each age group were pushed by New Zealand and South Africa, with each country making a grand final.

The home side’s strength was shown through the results, with the under-16 boys side going undefeated coupled with the under-14 boys side claiming points in eight of a possible 10 matches.

It was tougher going for the under-18 boys, losing three matches and being pushed by a strong South African side, whom they ultimately defeated in the final, claiming back the only title Australia didn’t return with from South Africa in 2012.

The under-18 girls also did it the hard way, going in as underdogs despite finishing atop the table, with the New Zealand squad the only team to topple the hosts in the preliminary stages.
