Eligibility of Players

Although the English cricket team represents England and Wales, any British citizen is eligible for selection by England without qualification.  In previous years, the Scottish and Northern Irish cricketers have played international cricket for England, along with the English and the Welsh.  Players can qualify to play for a country by nationality, place of birth or residence, in accordance to the ICC Regulations.  This has resulted in many non-British players playing for England. 

In previous years, England has been captained by two South Africans.  The English team has had a mixture of Africans, Australians and New Zealanders play for them.  It is often the case that British players play for another Home Nation as well as for England.  As an example, in the 1999 World Cup Gavin Hamilton played for Scotland and later played one Test match for England.
