On Thursday Cricket Australia unveiled its new guidelines to ensure transgender players can take part in the game at the highest levels.

The policy sets out a testosterone limit for transgender and gender-diverse players who want to play for state and national women’s teams.

Cricket Australia chief executive 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.”

To be eligible for elite women’s teams, the players must show a testosterone concentration of less than 10 nanomoles per litre over at least 12 months.

They must also be able to demonstrate their elected gender is consistent with how they are living their lives on a daily basis.

The move more closely aligns Australia to the International Cricket Council’s gender diversity guidelines.

The guidelines cover everything from victimisation to privacy and providing suitable facilities, as well as the collection of personal information.
