Cricket Australia releases transgender policy

Cricket Australia (CA) unveiled new guidelines to ensure transgender players can take part in the game of cricket at the highest levels. A policy that ensures transgender and gender-diverse people can play cricket at the highest level has been introduced in Australia.

The policy sets out a testosterone limit for transgender and gender-diverse players who want to play for state and national women's teams. To be eligible for elite women's teams, the players must show a testosterone concentration of fewer than 10 nanomoles per litre over at least 12 months.

CEO of Cricket Australia Kevin Roberts said in a statement: “It doesn’t make any sense that today, people are discriminated against, harassed or excluded, because of who they are. And that’s not right.”
