Cricket is an optional sport at the quadrennial Commonwealth Games.[1] It first appeared at the 1998 Games, with a men's tournament seeing South Africa defeat Australia by 4 wickets in the final. Matches were played over 50 overs and had List A status rather than being full One Day Internationals.

The sport returned to the Games' programme at the 2022 Games, with a women's tournament taking place.[2] Matches were played under the Twenty20 format, with the tournament won by Australia.[3][4] A woman's Twenty20 tournament is planned to be part of the 2026 Games.[5]

As is normal at the multi-sport events, Caribbean countries that enter participate as separate nations, not as the combined West Indies team. The England team represents only England and not Wales.
