The Bahamas national cricket team is the team that represents The Bahamas in international cricket. The team is organised by the Bahamas Cricket Association (BCA), which became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 1987 and an associate member in 2017.[1] The national team is first recorded as playing in 1983, but did not feature in an international tournament until 2001, when it played in the inaugural Americas Affiliates Championship.[5] Since then, the Bahamas have regularly participated in ICC Americas tournaments, as well as on one occasion in a World Cricket League event (the 2010 Division Eight tournament).[6] The team was also invited to the 2006 and 2008 Stanford 20/20 tournaments, where matches had full Twenty20 status.[7]

In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between the Bahamas and other ICC members after 1 January 2019 have the T20I status.[8]


The Bahamas became an affiliate member of the ICC in 1987,[9] although they didn't appear in international competition until the ICC Americas Championship in 2002. They came fifth in that tournament, gaining a surprise win over hosts Argentina. They again played in the tournament in 2004, this time coming through a qualifying tournament. They finished last in the main tournament though, which meant they played in Division Two of the new divisional system in 2006. They finished second in that tournament, which wasn't good enough to qualify for Division One. They will remain in Division two in 2008.

In 2006, The Bahamas were one of the teams invited to take part in the Stanford 20/20. They got $100,000 for participating in the tournament, but were eliminated at the first hurdle by the Cayman Islands.

Bahamas played in the 2021 ICC Men's T20 World Cup Americas Qualifier, its first official ICC tournament in twelve years. Andy Moles was appointed as the team's head coach for the tournament.[10] The Cricketer reported that the team went "without an international fixture for a staggering eight and a half years due to a combination of lack of funding and ICC cutbacks on tournaments at this level of associate cricket".[11]
