The first ever international cricket match in history was between two countries not well renowned for their cricketing play – the USA and Canada.

The match took place between 25 and 27 September 1844 at the St George’s Cricket Club, Bloomingdale Park in New York, in which Canada won by 23 runs. It is widely regarded as the first ever international sporting match of any kind.
