History

The Cayman Islands became an affiliate member of the ICC in 1997[1] and played their first tournament three years later when they played in the ICC Americas Championship in Canada. They finished fourth in the tournament, their only win coming against Argentina.[5] Later in the year, they played their first List A matches as part of the Red Stripe Bowl in the West Indies. They played against Bermuda, Guyana, the Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands in the first round, losing all their games.[6]

The Cayman Islands gained associate membership of the ICC in 2002, a year in which they finished third in the Americas Championship in Buenos Aires, Argentina after recording wins against Argentina, the Bahamas and Bermuda.[7] The 2004 Americas Championship served as a qualifying competition for the 2005 ICC Trophy, and a repeat of their third place finish from 2002 would have qualified them for that tournament. Wins against Argentina and the Bahamas meant they could only finish fourth however.[8] This did qualify them for a place in a repêchage tournament in early 2005 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They finished fifth in that tournament after beating Kuwait in a play-off match.[9]

Later in 2005, the Cayman Islands took part in the ICC Intercontinental Cup, a tournament for ICC associate members with first-class status. They lost both their first round matches to Bermuda and Canada, thus not qualifying for the semi-finals.[2] In 2006, they first played in the inaugural Stanford 20/20 tournament. They beat the Bahamas in the preliminary round,[10] but lost to Trinidad & Tobago in the first round proper.[11]

In August 2006, they finished third in Division One of the ICC Americas Championship after wins against Argentina and Canada.[12] This qualified them for Division Three of the World Cricket League, which was played in May/June 2007 in Darwin, Australia. After beating Hong Kong and Tanzania in the first round, they lost to Argentina in the semi finals, and to Papua New Guinea in the third place play off, thus finishing fourth in the tournament.[13]

The future

In early 2008, the Cayman Islands will again take part in the Stanford 20/20. They have been drawn against St Lucia in the preliminary round.[16] In 2009, they will again play in Division Three of the World Cricket League, where they will play against Papua New Guinea and four teams still to be decided.[3] A top two finish in that tournament will qualify them for the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifier in the United Arab Emirates, where they must finish in the top six to qualify for the 2011 World Cup.[17]
