The Falkland Islands national cricket team is the team that represents the British overseas territory of the Falkland Islands in international cricket matches.

The team is organised by the Falkland Islands Cricket Association (FICA), which became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council on 29 June 2007 (although Argentina abstained from the vote admitting it as a member). The Falkland Islands played its first international match in February 2004, playing against Chile in Santiago. The team did not make its debut in an ICC-sanctioned tournament until June 2010, when it took part in the 2010 Americas Championship Division Four event in Mexico. The following year, the Falklands played in the 2011 Americas Twenty20 Division Three tournament in Costa Rica, losing all five of its matches. The territory currently has only a single cricket pitch, located on Mount Pleasant Airfield Oval, which hampers the national team's ability to participate internationally. As of August 2010, there were plans to construct the islands' second cricket pitch, to be built in the capital Stanley.
