The KwaZulu-Natal Inland Cricket Union is an associate member union of Cricket South Africa and is responsible for all matters pertaining to cricket in the province’s interior.
The KZNICU’s jurisdiction covers by far the largest landmass in KZN, stretching from Zululand in the north to East Griqualand in the south, and the provincial boundaries of Mpumalanga, Free State, Lesotho and the Eastern Cape in the west, and in the east, a line following the eastern boundaries of the Sisonke, uMgungundlovu, Umzinyathi and Zululand district municipalities.
For ease of administration, the KZNICU jurisdiction closely follows the district municipality demarcations of Zululand, Umzinyathi, Amajuba, uThukhela, Sisonke and uMgundundlovu.
Each of the six districts is represented by sub-unions that are affiliated to the KZNICU. The set-up is dominated by the Maritzburg Cricket Association and Midlands Cricket Union (uMgungundlovu), while the East Griqualand Cricket Union and the Southern District Cricket Union comprise Sisonke, Northern District Cricket Union (Amajuba), Umzinyathi Cricket Association (Umzinyathi), Northern Natal Cricket Board (uThukela) and the Northern District Cricket Union in Zululand make up the other sub-unions.
