Description:
The New South Wales Cricket Association is a sporting club who administer cricket in New South Wales, based at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Their trading name is Cricket NSW.

Established in 1859, the club was established to respond to a challenge to an Intercolonial match put out by the Melbourne Cricket Club with a prize of 500 pounds. The NSWCA team won that match. The first secretary of the club was Richard Driver.

Today, the New South Wales Blues are part of the Association. They compete in the Australian first-class competition known as the Sheffield Shield, the Australian one-day competition currently known as the Ford Ranger One Day Cup and for the last several seasons in the newer shorter Australian Twenty20 Competition. The Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers are also part of the association.
