The Western Australia cricket team, nicknamed the Western Warriors, represent the Australian state of Western Australia in Australian domestic cricket. The team is selected and supported by the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA), and plays its home games at the WACA Ground and Perth Stadium in Perth. The team mainly plays matches against other Australian states in the first-class Sheffield Shield competition and the limited-overs JLT One-Day Cup, but occasionally plays matches against touring international sides. Western Australia previously also fielded sides at Twenty20 level, but was replaced by the Perth Scorchers for the inaugural 2011-12 season of the Big Bash League. Western Australia's current captain is Mitchell Marsh, and the current coach is Adam Voges.
Western Australia played their opening first-class matches on a tour of the Eastern states during the 1892-93 season, playing two games, against South Australia at the Adelaide Oval, and against Victoria at the MCG. The team was captained by Herbert Orr.
They continued to play first-class matches against South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, interspersed with matches against visiting teams from overseas, until they were admitted to the Sheffield Shield in the 1947-48 season. They played each other state only once a season at first, then beginning in 1956-57 they began playing each state twice, like the other teams.
Since joining the Sheffield Shield in 1947-48, Western Australia has won the competition 15 times, second only to New South Wales in that period. In the One-Day Cup, the team leads the winners table comfortably with 12 wins followed by New South Wales with eight wins.
The state has a proud history in producing Australian Test players such as Justin Langer, Dennis Lillee, Adam Gilchrist, Michael Hussey, Terry Alderman and Geoff Marsh, along with Shaun Marsh, Marcus North, Adam Voges, and Mitchell Marsh in recent times. Englishman Tony Lock also represented his country in the 1967-68 season as a WA player - he was no longer attached to any English county.
Aside from test players, several Western Australian players have recently made their international debut in other forms of the game, such as Joel Paris with his One Day International debut, and Andrew Tye with his debut in international Twenty20 cricket.
Langer was appointed as coach of WA, along with the Perth Scorchers, in late 2012 and oversaw a period of success after almost a decade without silverware. Langer's Warriors won the 2014-15 One-Day Cup, while the side were Sheffield Shield runners-up in both 2013-14 and 2014-15. The Scorchers also went back-to-back in the Big Bash League in 2013-14 and 2014-15.
