The Chilean cricket team is the team that represents the country of Chile in international cricket matches.



Cricket was first played in the country in 1829 and the first club, the Valparaíso Cricket Club was formed in 1860. Their first international fixture was played in 1893 against Argentina. [1]

Interest in the game had waned after the Second World War, and Chile did not become a member of the International Cricket Council until 2002. [2].

Their first international engagement as an ICC affiliate member was the Division Three tournament of the ICC Americas Championship, played in Suriname in February 2006. The Chileans finished in third place, their only win coming against Brazil.

The February 2008 edition of the Division 3 tournament was held in Argentina. Chile defeated Belize, Turks & Caicos Islands and Peru only to lose to Brazil. Chile finished the tournament second due to net run rate.
