After Uttarakhand came into existence in year 2000, even by 2008 the state did not have a cricket team due to multiple cricket associations from the state applied for BCCI affiliation. In 2015, 3 of the 5 associations united under Uttarakhand Cricket Association to try to get BCCI affiliation.[6] In 2017, United Cricket Association left the union and merged with Cricket Association of Uttarakhand (CAU).[7] In 2018, when the cricket team started playing, BCCI had to constitute a Uttarakhand Cricket Consensus Committee to run the affairs of cricket in the state. In 2019, BCCI granted Cricket Association of Uttarakhand (CAU) its full membership. Uttarakhand Cricket Association failed to make through adequate criteria of BCCI, while Uttaranchal Cricket Association was rejected due to its lower revenue in comparison to CAU.[7]

In June 2020, Wasim Jaffer was announced as the head coach of Uttarakhand cricket team for 2020–21 season.[8]
