The Big Picture

The indoor cricket calendar is winding up as the biggest tournament of the year hits the shores of New Zealand this week. The World Indoor Cricket Federation (WICF) Junior World Series of Indoor Cricket is taking place in Christchurch from Saturday as the city plays host to four other countries vying for the title of Junior World Champions in their respective grades.

The triennial event was last held in Brisbane, Australia in 2015 where Australia performed a clean sweep of all the grades. Unsurprisingly, they have been the dominant side in previous editions of the tournament, similar to their senior teams. New Zealand and South Africa have also been victorious previously.

Indoor Cricket Masters World Series England 2016

WICF Masters World Series 2016

Australia has tasted success at the 2016 World Indoor Cricket Federations Masters World Series in England.

Four of Australia's five sides will return home as world champions, with the over-50, over-45, over-40 and over-35 men's sides taking out their respective divisions at the tournament, which finished last week.

Australia's over-50 and over-45 men's sides both won their respective divisions decisively, recording 96 and 103-run wins respectively in their tournament grand finals - both against South Africa.

The over-40 men also defeated South Africa in their grand final, by 33 runs, while in the over-35 men's division, Australia defeated New Zealand by 26 runs.

For the over-40 and over-45 men's sides, the tournament wins were back-to-back triumphs, after success at the World Indoor Cricket Federation Masters World Series in 2013 in South Africa.

Australia fielded a side in each division at the tournament, which was played at the Action Indoor Cricket Arena in Birmingham, as did host nation England, New Zealand and South Africa. Sri Lanka and Singapore also competed in the men’s over-35s and over-40s division.

All five sides finishing the round-robin games on top of the ladder, and Australia's over-50 and over-40 men's sides were rarely troubled throughout the tournament, going through undefeated in convincing fashion.

The over-35 women's Championship was taken buy the South African Team beating Australia buy 8 Runs.

Indoor Cricket Juniors 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.

Latest News - Future International Events Changes


The purpose of this report is to clearly articulate decisions taken by the World Indoor Cricket Federation (WICF) on the 2nd October 2012 in regards to:

a) Underage Division Description,
b) Universal Date of Eligibility
c) Masters Divisions post 2016.


The first WICF World Cup was held in 1995 with just one division and since then the international calendar has grown to include teams from 12 and under boys through to over 45 men. This has often meant the tournament at which a division has competed has changed as numbers have changed. For example the 19 and under boys and girls division were regular competitors at the Masters World Series until 2005 when the expansion of that competition led to the move to the World Cup. The introduction of the Junior World Series in 2012 means that for the first time there is a clear pathway for players from 12 and under through to Open divisions and beyond.

This initiative now gives players across the world the opportunity to enter a pathway that can take them all the way to elite level. It now becomes the responsibility of the WICF and its member countries to ensure that this pathway delivers on its promise to produce the world’s best indoor cricket players and tournaments...
