Fixtures & Statistics
Cricket Peru organises a 12 to 14 week season at the Lima Cricket & Football Club (LCFC) from January until Easter.
The National Twenty20 Tournament began in 2007 with four Lima-based teams playing each other once over three weekends for the much-coveted Cup. In 2010, this was expanded into an Apertura and Clausura tournament, so that the four teams played each other twice; also, a second division was added to the Clausura tournament, to give more people exposure and access to cricket.
Then in 2013, a 5th team, Lima Indians was added to the roster.
The Annual Easter tournament often involves invited teams from outside Lima (often Chile, Guyanan Masters, or Tacna) when the national team is not touring overseas.
Other important regular matches are the British Ambassador’s XI vs President of the LCFC XI and India/Pakistan vs Rest of the World. And a recent addition to the Cricket Peru calendar is ‘Las Cenizas’ between England and Australia.
In November 2006, a uniquely Peruvian cricket form, Cricket Veloz, was introduced to the cricketing calendar, and the Tim Bayly Cricket Veloz Trophy has been hotly contested every year since. Originally designed as a four-team, indoor tournament, in 2009 it was rebranded as an outdoor 6-a-side festival, with great success, fitting nicely into the 150th Anniversary celebrations of the LCFC
