CA has developed an Elite Cricket Policy and Guidelines for Community Cricket to support players electing to participate in cricket in line with their gender identity, whether or not this aligns with the sex they were assigned at birth.
The Elite Cricket Policy provides transgender and gender diverse cricketers guidance on how they can compete at the highest levels of the sport, consistent with their gender identity.
The Guidelines for Community Cricket will assist clubs, players, administrators, coaches and other volunteers to deliver a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment, free of harassment and discrimination for gender diverse players at the game’s grassroots.

“I’m proud that we can be a part of this is fantastic step forward for the game,which brings usevencloser to achieving our vision of making cricket the most accessible sport for everyone.”
