Australian Cricket welcomes people from all diverse cultures and backgrounds to our exciting game.

Australia today is a diverse and fluid society. Cultural diversity is a fact of life in Australia with 43% of the national population either born overseas or having one parent born overseas.

Australian cricket is dedicated to making cricket a truly inclusive sport by catering to the diverse needs of Australia's population and committing to community development. Cricket is a game that can be played by males and females of all ages.
