 Andhra Cricket AssociationThe Andhra Cricket Association (ACA) is one of the members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The ACA is the authorised association for organising cricket matches and other official events in the state. The ACA was established in the year 1953, with the two great cricket players from Andhra Pradesh, C. K. Naidu and C. S. Naidu, and Mushtaq Ali playing a festival match for marking the foundation. The association is controlled by the BCCI, apex organization for cricket in India. It arranges domestic and international matches for the association.

Origin of Andhra Cricket Association:
Cricket was being played in an organised way in the state of Andhra Pradesh even before the formation of the Andhra Cricket Association. There were a few clubs which were born in Guntur District around the year 1952. Initiatives were taken to start cricket clubs in various parts of Andhra Pradesh after it had separated from Madras (now Chennai). Later on, they elected to join together to form an association which was named as the Andhra Cricket Association in Guntur District. The club was inaugurated in Col. C.K. Naidu. After the ACA was formed in 1953, another cricket organisation formed in the year of 1962. It was the Vishakhapatnam District Cricket Association that boosted the cricket scenario in the state and ACA gradually became the leading cricket organisation in Andhra Pradesh.

Activities of Andhra Cricket Association:
