There is some truth to what you say, but the England cricket team does represent England and Wales not just England.

For historical reasons the England and Wales Cricket Board calls its representative team England, but Welsh players take part in it. For example Simon Jones of Glamorgan played an important part in the Ashes series with Australia last year.
