The England team celebrate victory over Australia in the 2015 Ashes series

The England cricket team represents England and Wales in international cricket and is a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with Test and One Day International (ODI) status.[1] England is the joint oldest team in Test history, having played in the first ever Test match in 1877 against Australia.[2] England and Australia also played the first ODI on 5 January 1971. England's first Twenty20 International (T20I) was played on 13 June 2005, once more against Australia.

As of 13 February 2019, England has played 1010 Test matches, winning 365 and losing 300 (with 345 draws). The team has won The Ashes on 32 occasions, one fewer than their opponents Australia.[3]

The team has played 721 ODIs, winning 360 and losing 328. 8 matches have been tied and 25 ended with no result.[4] England's record in ODI tournaments includes finishing as runners-up in three Cricket World Cups (1979, 1987 and 1992), and two ICC Champions Trophies (2004 and 2013).

The team has played 105 Twenty20 Internationals, winning 50, lost 50, 1 tie+win and 4 no result matches.[5] The best T20I tournament result for England came when they won the ICC World Twenty20 in 2010, beating their rivals Australia in the final.

As of November 2018, England have faced nine teams in Test cricket, with their most frequent opponent being Ashes rivals, Australia; playing 346 matches against them.[6] Due to playing more matches against them, they have registered the most wins (108) against Australia, but their best winning percentage is 90.00 against Bangladesh, having won 9 of 10 Tests.[6] In ODI matches, England have played against 18 teams; they have played against Australia most frequently, with a winning percentage of 43.05 in 147 matches.[7] Against the major ODI nations, England have defeated Pakistan on 49 occasions with a winning percentage of 61.25, which is their best record in ODIs.[7] The team have competed against 11 countries in T20Is, and have played 16 matches against both Australia and New Zealand.[8]
