The African Cricket Association is an international body which oversees cricket in African countries. The ACA was founded in 1997, and has 20 member countries. The ACC is a sub-ordinate body to the International Cricket Council.

South African and Zimbabwean Cricket is independently administered by their own boards, however the ACA is responsible for the administration, promotion and development across the rest of the Africa continent. They are also responsible for the development of coaching and umpiring, and expanding cricket administration within national organisations on the African Continent. Prior to the Creation of the ACA, and the rest of Africa was administered by two separate organisations, the East and Central Africa Cricket Conference and the West Africa Cricket Council.

The ACA also organises the African XI which competes in the Afro-Asian Cup.
