Read the ECB's latest Annual Report

On Wednesday 18 May 2022, the ECB published the 2021/2022 Annual Report. Last year saw a record number participating in cricket, with a new high of 14m playing, attending or following cricket, an increase of 3m since 2019.

There was also important progress in delivering both the Inspiring Generations strategy and the game’s action plan to tackle discrimination and drive equity and inclusivity at every level.

Launched in 2019, the ECB’s five-year strategy, Inspiring Generations, aims to inspire a new generation and is being delivered through six priorities. Whilst more work continues to deliver the strategy, the Annual Report shows some of the impact that the investment is having, through the stories of clubs, players, coaches, fans and volunteers across England and Wales.
