The Isle of Man cricket team is the team that represents the Crown dependency of the Isle of Man in international cricket matches. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council in 2004. [1]

International Competition

The first international engagement for the Isle of Man came in 2005 at the European Affiliates Championship. They finished in eighth place in this tournament, which originally meant a demotion to Division Four in the newly expanded five division European Championship. [2] However, when the divisions were announced, the Isle of Man had a place in Division Three for 2007. As they had a year without competitive international cricket in 2006, the Isle of Man arranged two one-day friendly matches against Spain played in La Manga at the end of September/beginning of October, both of which they won. The Manx cricket team, based in the Isle of Man, joined the ICC in 2004, playing their first ICC affiliated competitions in 2005. Previously the national sides had played fixtures against the MCC, on tour in the UK and against touring sides to the Isle of Man. They competed in the 4 Islands Tournaments in 2000, 2002 and 2004 finishing 2nd, 3rd & 2nd respectively. Their most well known player was D.N Jacobs, who spent time as a trialist with some English Counties in the mid 1980's, and was reported to have signed for Minor County side Wiltshire in the regional press, but due to complications regarding his Manx nationality with the authorities, he returned to the Isle of Man to play amateur cricket.
