List A cricket


List A cricket

List A cricket is a classification of the limited-overs (one-day) form of the sport of cricket. Much as domestic first-class cricket is the level below international Test match cricket, so List A cricket is the domestic level of one-day cricket below One Day Internationals. The name was coined by the statistician Philip Bailey, there being a List B of matches not regarded as being of sufficient status for List A.

Most cricketing nations have some form of domestic List A competition. The number of overs in List A cricket ranges from forty to sixty overs per side.

The categorization of cricket matches as "List A" was not officially endorsed by the International Cricket Council until 2006, when the ICC announced that it and its member associations would be determining this classification in a manner similar to that done for first class matches. The Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians created this category for the purpose of providing an equivalent to first-class cricket, to allow the generation of career records and statistics for comparable one-day matches. Only the more important one-day competitions in each country, plus matches against a touring Test team, are included.

* Matches that qualify as List A:
** One-day Internationals (ODIs)
** Other international matches
** Premier one-day tournaments in each country
** Official matches of a touring Test team against main first-class teams
* Matches that do not qualify as List A:
** Twenty20 cricket including internationals [CricketArchive treats List A and Twenty20 separately. When searching on a player, they are separate categories, while a search for List A matches excludes Twenty20.]
** World Cup warm-up matches
** Other Tourist matches (for example, against first-class teams that are not part of the main domestic first-class competition, such as universities)
** Festival and friendly matches
