List A cricket

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

List A cricket is a classification of the limited-overs (one-day) form of the sport of cricket. Much as domestic first-class cricket is the level below international Test match cricket, so List A cricket is the domestic level of one-day cricket below One Day Internationals.

[edit] Status

Most cricketing nations have some form of domestic List A competition. The number of overs in List A cricket ranges from forty to sixty overs per side.

The categorization of cricket matches as "List A" was not officially endorsed by the International Cricket Council until 2006 [1] when the ICC announced that it and its member associations would be determining this classification in a manner similar to that done for first class matches. The Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians created this category for the purpose of providing an equivalent to first-class cricket, to allow the generation of career records and statistics for comparable one-day matches. Only the more important one-day competitions in each country, plus matches against a touring Test team, are included. The list was the work of Philip Bailey and the name is derived simply from there being a list A and a list B.
[edit] Matches that qualify as List A

* One-day Internationals (ODIs)
* Other international matches
* Premier one-day tournaments in each country
* Official matches of a touring Test team against main first-class teams

[edit] Matches that do not qualify as List A

* Twenty20 cricket including internationals [2]
* World Cup warm-up matches
* Other Tourist matches (for example, against first-class teams that are not part of the main domestic first-class competition, such as universities)
* Festival and friendly matches
