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.


Indoor Cricket Masters World Series 2019 - South Africa

The Countdown is on!

The Masters World Series is being hosted in Cape Town for the first time, and I would like to extend a huge thank you to Bruce Miller and his team for putting the event together.

We believe this could be one of our biggest events yet. Its an exciting time to be involved in indoor cricket around the world as the WICF continues its talks with the International Cricket Council (ICC).

We are hopeful to see teams competing from several new countries throughout the Series, within the 5 different grades: 30 & over Womens, 35 & over Mens, 40 & over Mens, 45 &over Men’s & 50 and over Men’s.

The 2016 Masters Worlds Series winners and defending champions are: South Africa: Womens Australia: 35s, 40s, 45s and 50s Mens It was great to see UAE and Malaysia compete in their first World event at the Opens World Cup and we look forward to seeing them compete at this year’s Masters as well.

The interest in Indoor is certainly growing with interest from Pakistan, Thailand, Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, West Indies, USA, and many more. We take great pleasure in welcoming back Australia, South Africa, England, India, Singapore, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. I look forward to welcoming you all to this World event in October 2019.

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.
