The International Cricket Council has implemented new gender eligibility regulations to prevent transgender women who have undergone male puberty from competing against biological females in international women’s cricket.

The decision is based on ensuring the integrity and safety of the sport, and will be revisited in two years to align with the evolving landscape of the sport.

“Male-to-female participants who have undergone male puberty will not be eligible to compete in the international women’s game,” the ICC stated.

“The changes to the gender eligibility regulations resulted from an extensive consultation process and are founded in science, aligning with the core principles developed during the review,” ICC chief executive Geoff Allardice pressed.

“Inclusivity is incredibly important to us as a sport, but our priority was to protect the integrity of the international women’s game and the safety of players.”
