    The Iran national cricket team are a national cricket team representing Iran in international cricket matches. They became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council in 2003.



    Cricket was introduced in Iran in the 1920s and 1930s by the British who were working in the oil industry but it ceased when the oil industry was nationalised in 1951. Cricket was reintroduced in the early 1990s by Iranians who had studied abroad. Iran joined the Asian Cricket Council in 2003. Tehran has now four clubs supported by expatriates. However the clubs at Chah Bahar, Iranshahr, Zahedan and Mashhad are made up almost entirely of locals.

    Following their admission to the International Cricket Council, they made their international debut at the 2004 ACC Trophy, and played in the tournament again in the 2006 tournament. On both occasions, they failed to progress beyond the first round. With the separation of the ACC Trophy into Elite and Challenge divisions, following their performance at the 2006 ACC Trophy Iran have since competed in the Challenge divisions in both 2009 and in the 2010 competition, coming 5th in both.
