The England cricket team[1] is the team that represents England and Wales (and until 1992 also Scotland) in international cricket. Since 1 January 1997 it has been governed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), having been previously governed by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) from 1903 until the end of 1996.[2][3]

England and Australia were the first teams to play a Test match (on 15–19 March 1877), and those two countries together with South Africa formed the Imperial Cricket Conference (predecessor of the International Cricket Council) on 15 June 1909. England and Australia also played the first One Day International (ODI) on 5 January 1971. England's first international Twenty20 match was played on 13 June 2005 against Australia. As of 24 June 2014, England have won 336 of the 947 Test matches they have played and lost 274 (with 337 draws).[4] England's One Day International record includes finishing as runners-up in three Cricket World Cups (1979, 1987 and 1992), and also as runners up in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004 and 2013. They won the ICC World Twenty20 in 2010.

As of 24 June 2014, the team is ranked fifth in the ICC Test rankings, fifth in the ODI rankings and eighth in T20 Internationals[5] and the Twenty20 world rankings.
