The Cricket Academy has been developing cricket in Malawi since 2010. In 2011 TCA got involved with North Star Alliance an N.G.O. That runs HIV/Aids awareness clinics and Mary’s Meals an N.G.O. That run school feeding programs all over Malawi. Most of our cricket programs are run at schools that Mary’s Meals provide their feeding program.
In 2012 TCA officially registered as “The Cricket Academy Limited” (Limited by Guarantee). In November 2013 volunteers from The Cricket Academy were elected to the executive board of the Malawi Cricket Union (MCU) the official governing body for cricket in Malawi.
In February 2014 the Malawi Cricket Union (MCU) executive board agreed to make The Cricket Academy (TCA) responsible for all development, administration, training of player & support personal for cricket in Malawi. By June 2014 MCU was fully reinstated as an Affiliate member of the ICC and this was mainly due to the structures TCA had put in place between 2010 & 2014.
In May 2015 after a 5 year absence from international cricket the Malawi National Men’s Cricket Team traveled to Mozambique to play in a triangular cricket tournament verses Zambia & Mozambique. For the first time in history the team was made up of home grown players most of whom have come through TCA development programs.
In 2016 for the first time in Malawi’s history an under 19 women’s team represented Malawi at an 8 Nation tournament in Botswana , a female team has never represented Malawi at cricket before.
