2018–19 JLT One-Day Cup

JLT One-Day Cup is a limited-overs cricket tournament that has been a feature of Australian cricket since the 1969–70 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 a select Cricket Australia XI took part as the seventh team for three seasons starting with 2015–16. The current champions are Victoria.



England was the first country to introduce a domestic one-day limited-overs competition with its Gillette Cup in 1963. Australia was the next country to do so when this competition was established in 1969–70. It has been held every summer since, under a wide variety of names and formats. It is a List A cricket competition. It was the first List A competition to feature numbers on player's shirts when they were introduced for the 1995–96 season and numbers were also subsequently introduced for the ODI series later in the season. In September 2017, former Australian Test cricketer Jason Gillespie suggested that Papua New Guinea should be added to the competition. [3]
