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 story 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 New Zealand Over-50s are travelling to Brisbane in July for a tri-series involving Australia and Sri Lanka. All matches will be streamed live and you can follow all the action on our Facebook page.
In November, New Zealand "A" and New Zealand "B" will compete in the Australian State Championships.
The 2022/23 Inter-Provincial Tournament (IPT) will be held in Mt Maunganui in December (8-12). This event will see the top 4 sides in the country (Auckland, Districts, Wellington/Tasman Firehawks and Canterbury/Otago) compete over 5 days. Canterbury/Otago are the defending champions, while Auckland won in 2020/21 and Wellington/Tasman won in 2019/20.
The IPT will again include 2 divisions this season, with each of the 4 above-mentioned regions entering two teams.
Then, in March of 2023 is the big one - the Over-50s Cricket World Cup - to be held in Cape Town, South Africa.
New players are always welcome. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jim Morrison at firstname.lastname@example.org. Kindly provide your date of birth, club affiliation and brief details about your cricketing background.
