Cricket In Israel

Cricket has always been an integral part of the Indian community and as the people migrated to other countries in search of livelihood so did cricket moved with them.

The history of cricket in Israel is also very old. The first migrants from India in the 1950s brought the game to Israel and since then it has flourished in this country. The passion for the game had expanded and an official cricket league was set up in the early 90s “Israel Cricket Association”.

Currently, the leagues are played in two divisions.
