The Suriname national cricket team is the team that represents the country of Surinaamse Cricket Bond, which has been an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 2011 (and previous an affiliate member from 2002).[1]

Suriname made its international debut at the 2004 Americas Affiliates Championship in Panama, where it placed last. At the 2006 ICC Americas Championship, the team won the division three event, and was promoted to division two for the 2008 edition. Suriname also won that event, and were promoted to the 2008 Division One tournament in the United States, but were immediately relegated after going winless. Since then, Suriname has generally alternated between the first and second divisions of ICC Americas events, most recently placing fourth (out of four teams) at the 2015 Americas Twenty20 Championship.[2] In the World Cricket League (WCL), the team placed last in the 2009 Division Seven tournament and fifth (out of eight teams) at the 2010 Division Eight tournament, relegating it to the regional qualifiers. Suriname re-entered the WCL system at the 2015 Division Six event in England, and subsequently qualified for 2016 Division Five.

Suriname became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council in 2002. Their international debut came in 2004 at the Americas Affiliates Championship, where they came last in the five team tournament. A big improvement came two years later in the new Division Three of the ICC Americas Championship when they won a four team tournament also involving Brazil, Chile and the Turks and Caicos Islands. This qualified them for the Division Two tournament played in Argentina late in 2006, when they came fourth out of five teams, which means that they will keep their Division Two place in 2008.

Suriname placed fifth at the 2009 Global Division Seven tournament and was relegated to Division Eight, where it placed fifth to again be relegated.
