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.

8 October 2022

World Indoor Cricket Federation (WICF) is happy to announce, that, following an understanding with South Africa Indoor Cricket Federation (SAICF), it has been decided to move the 2023 Juniors World Series to Dubai.

The tournament originally meant to be held at Fourways Action Sports in Johannesburg will now head to the Middle East nation from September 29 – October 7 2023, with more teams than ever expected to take part due to its geographical reach.

“We successfully held the 2017 Indoor Cricket World Cup in Dubai and to take the Juniors World Series back there is going to add a new flavor to the game. We have stronger commitments from the WICF Board to send more teams to this event and I am pleased that this will be the biggest ever Juniors tournament. I thank the SAICF for supporting the move.” – Tony Watkins, WICF President

“SAICF has agreed to this move in the greater interest of the Juniors game, and I thank the Emirates Indoor UAE board for embracing this opportunity. We will co-host this tournament with our colleagues in Dubai and will ensure that we deliver a successful event for the participating teams.” – Ray Lourens, SAICF President & 2023 Juniors World Series Tournament Director

A decision on the centre/venue for the marquee event shall be taken in due course and a further announcement will be made shortly.

Tony Watkins and the WICF Board
