The Invicta Cricket League (abbreviated ICL) is a league comprised of teams in the Invicta alliance who compete in the sport of Cricket. The league was founded in March 2010 and consists of ten teams. Teams will play each other twice in Twenty20 competition, during the regular season which runs from April through July. The championship cup, the Thomas Becket Cup, will be awarded to the team who, at the end of the season, has the most wins. In the event of a tie, the team who scores the most runs per over will be crowned champion.
The ICL is the first sporting league to be organised within Invicta and expands upon the alliance's Kentish roots. Kent's Weald region, outside the county town of Maidstone, is fabled to be one of the earliest places where cricket was played, at about the start of the 14th century.
The inaugural season began on 1 April 2010, with all ten teams competing before an average of 2500 fans each. For most spectators, it was considered a welcome spectacle following months of war and subsequent rebuilding. Most teams competed in reconstructed baseball or football stadia, adjusting bleachers to account for the centrally located bowling pitch. Many of the players are war veterans, with only a handful having prior Test match and One-Day International experience. Several players from Pflugerville previously played for their national baseball team, which has made them one of the favourites to win the first Becket Cup.
The ICL has received mixed reviews from sport fans across Invicta, many of whom are more knowledgeable of the North American sports of American football, Baseball and Basketball. Even club owners have expressed added confusion concerning the intricacies of cricket, at times not being able to find correlation to baseball.
Ten teams have been granted membership in the ICL, and are all sponsored by their nation's respective Invicta Cricket Club (ICC).
