New Zealand Over-50s Cricket

Welcome to the website for New Zealand Over-50s Cricket. Here you can find details on the past, present and future of over-50s cricket in New Zealand.

 

Our History page goes through the 3 years of NZ over-50s cricket, starting with the Australian tour of NZ in February 2018, right through to today. We have profiles on all the players who have represented New Zealand and our Statistics page keeps track of the leading run-scorers, wicket-takers, etc., both at international and domestic level.

Our Calendar (below) lets you know what is coming up (and recently completed).

 The 2020/21 Inter-Provincial Tournament (IPT) was recently completed in Auckland.​ This event saw the top 4 sides in the country (Auckland Cavaliers, Districts Evergreens, Wellington/Tasman Firehawks and Canterbury/Otago Mainlanders) compete over 5 days, with Auckland emerging victorious.

Another national tournament is being arranged in Wellington, in mid-February, primarily for players who were not selected for their IPT teams.  

Finally, two North Island/South Island matches will be held in Christchurch on February 26 and 28.

We are always looking for new players. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jim Morrison at over50sworldcup@gmail.com. Kindly provide your date of birth, club affiliation and brief details about your cricketing background.
