The Ford Ranger One Day Cup is the most recent name of the domestic List A cricket (One-day/limited overs cricket) competition in Australia.

The competition commenced in 1969-70 with a knock-out format featuring the Australian state teams and New Zealand. Known as the Vehicle & General Australasian Knock-out Competition for two seasons, a sponsorship change meant that it went by the name of Coca-Cola Australasian Knock-out Competition in 1971-72 and 1972-73. In 1973-74, it was renamed the Gillette Cup. The competition became a purely Australian affair after New Zealand's last season in 1974-75.

The format was changed in 1979-80, when the new McDonald's Cup featured a two pool system. The same format was used by the FAI Cup from 1988-89 to 1991-92. From 1992-93, the Mercantile Mutual Cup involved a full round robin before the semifinals, and in 1997-98, the Canberra Comets were included. Only lasting three seasons, the Comets were axed in 2000-01, when the round robin structure was expanded to include home and away meetings for all teams before a single final. The name ING Cup was first used in the next season, following Mercantile Mutual's rebranding, and was used up to and including 2005–06, when ING withdrew as sponsor and Ford bought the naming rights.

Teams

Points system

Since the 2005–06 season, the following points have been awarded for each pool match:
* 4 points for a win
* 2 points for a no-result or a tie
* 0 points for a loss
* 1 bonus point if a team achieves a run rate 1.25 times that of the opposition
* 2 bonus points if a team achieves a run rate twice that of the opposition

The top two teams at the end of the pool matches play-off in the final. The higher-placed team has the home ground advantage.

In 2006-07, the Ford Ranger One Day Cup was televised on Fox Sports. 25 out of the 31 games were televised including the final. Prior to Fox Sports' broadcasting of the domestic cricket competition, Nine was the host broadcaster.
