Cincol has got it - Canda and USA it is.

 

September 24, 1844. The first ever International cricket match was played — between United States and Canada in New York. The game that started on this day is believed to be the first ever sporting contest of any kind involving rivals across international borders.

 

Canada batted first - scoring 82 and then 63.

America could only manage 64 and 58 runs and thus Canada won the match by 23 runs.
