CricketArchive is a cricket database website which is based in Sutton, United Kingdom.[2][3] It claims to be the most comprehensive cricket database on the internet and has been used by various media as a resource.[4][5][6][7]

The Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians (ACS), which has a semi-official role in ratifying some match figures for the International Cricket Council, states that its own record "draws on the unmatched database held by CricketArchive" and carries direct links to the CricketArchive database from its own records section.[8] Peter Griffiths, long time editor for CricketArchive, was awarded the 2008 ACS Statistician of the Year title for his work on CricketArchive.[9] Philip Bailey, one of the founders of the CricketArchive site and still as of 2017 a major contributor, is one of only three people to have been awarded the ACS Statistician of the Year title more than once.[10]

The website includes scorecards for all matches of first-class cricket, List A cricket, Women's Test cricket, Women's One-day Internationals, ICC Trophy, international Under-19 cricket Test and one-day cricket and blind cricket matches.[11]

It is working on completing its coverage of English Second XI and other matches, including extensive coverage of UK club cricket.

In 2017, the owners of the service decided to introduce paid access to the website.[11][12]
