Cricket NSW (formerly known as the New South Wales Cricket Association) is an Australian sporting association that administers cricket in New South Wales. It is based at the Sydney Olympic Park. The New South Wales Blues, the Sydney Thunder and the Sydney Sixers are a part of the association.[1]

History

Cricket NSW was established in 1859.[2] William Tunks and Richard Driver were the inaugural joint secretaries of the association.[2] The current CEO is Lee Germon.[3] The organisation was based next to the Sydney Cricket Ground for decades. However, in 2019 the organisation moved to temporary offices in the Sydney Olympic Park precinct, while a new $50 million state of the art administration, high performance and community facility is built on the north side of the Olympic Park precinct along the Parramatta River.[4]
