Prime Minister's XI or PM's XI (formerly 'Australian Prime Minister's Invitation XI') is the name of an annual cricket match which is held at the Manuka Ovalmarker in Canberramarker, with the Australian team picked by the Prime Minister of Australia playing against an overseas team. The Australian team usually includes up and coming players.

In 1984 the Prime Minister's XI took on the Parliamentary Press Gallery XI in what was dubbed the 'Pollies vs Press' match. The Prime Minister, Bob Hawke played, and whilst batting, top-edged a hook shot into his face, smashing his glasses in the process. Although retiring hurt for treatment, he later returned to the crease to see the PM's XI home for victory.[210474]

Indiamarker lost the December 1999 PM's XI by 164 runs. [210475]

Englandmarker lost the 2002 Prime Minister's XI. [210476]

In 2003 there was a match between the PM's XI and an ATSIC Chairperson's XI held at Adelaide Ovalmarker [210477]

Pakistanmarker won the match in January 2005 with a five-wicket victory with seven overs remaining. [210478]

The 2005/06 match was changed from South Africa to the West Indiesmarker. [210479]The team announced is captained by Justin Langer.

The match on December 2, 2005 had to end early due to the Canberra storms, with Australia getting 4/316, and West Indies finishing in the 31st over at 3/174. The PM's XI won by six runs using the Duckworth-Lewis method.

Controversially, the match was played on the same day Van Tuong Nguyen was due to be hanged in Singaporemarker for drug smuggling. The Prime Minister of the day, John Howard decided to go ahead with the traditional match.

In 2006/2007 England lost to the Prime Minister's XI by 166 runs. The game was scheduled earlier than usual (November 10) due to the Ashes Series. It was the first English tour match of the summer.
