| Limited-overs (50 overs per side)|
Single round-robin, then finals series
A limited-overs cricket tournament has been a feature of Australian cricket since the 1969–70 season, branded as the Matador BBQs One-Day Cup for the 2016–17 season. Initially a knockout cup, the competition now features a single round-robin followed by a finals series, with matches limited to 50 overs per side. The tournament is contested between teams representing the six states of Australia, who also compete in the first-class Sheffield Shield. Three other teams have also played in the tournament for short periods of time: New Zealand's national team competed in several early tournaments, a team representing Australian Capital Territory participated for a brief period in the late 1990s, and Cricket Australia XI took part as the seventh team for three seasons starting with 2015-16. The current champions are New South Wales.
