in Pakistan
Pakistan
has a history predating the creation of the country in 1947. The first ever international cricket match in Karachi was held on 22 November 1935 between Sindh
Sindh
and Australian cricket teams. The match was seen by 5,000 Karachiites.[22] Following the independence of Pakistan
Pakistan
in 1947, cricket in the country developed rapidly and Pakistan
Pakistan
was given Test match status at a meeting of the Imperial Cricket
Cricket
Conference at Lord's
Lord's
in England
England
on 28 July 1952 following recommendation by India,[23] which, being the successor state of the British Raj, did not have to go through such a process. The first captain of the Pakistan
Pakistan
national cricket team was Abdul Hafeez Kardar. Pakistan's first Test match was played in Delhi
Delhi
in October 1952 as part of a five Test series which India

Peshawar
and Karachi
Karachi
(all five matches in the series were drawn, the first such occurrence in Test history[24]). The team is considered a strong but unpredictable team. Traditionally Pakistani cricket has been comprised of talented players but is alleged to display limited discipline on occasion, making their performance inconsistent at times. In particular, the India-Pakistan cricket rivalry is usually emotionally charged and can provide for intriguing contests, as talented teams and players from both sides of the border seek to elevate their game to new levels. Pakistani contests with India
India
in the Cricket World Cup

have resulted in packed stadiums and highly charged atmospheres. The team is well supported at home and abroad, especially in the United Kingdom

where British Pakistanis

have formed a fan-club called the "Stani Army". Members of the club show up to matches across the country and are known to provide raucous support. The Stani Army also takes part in charity initiatives for underprivileged Pakistanis, including annual friendly cricket matches against British Indian
British Indian
members of the similar "Bharat Army". 1986 Austral-Asia Cup[edit] Main article: Austral-Asia Cup The 1986 Austral-Asia Cup, played in Sharjah in UAE, is remembered for a famous last-ball victory for Pakistan

with a required run rate of 4.92 runs per over. Miandad came in to bat at number 3 and Pakistan

lost wickets at regular intervals. Later recalling the match, he stated that his main focus was to lose with dignity. With 31 runs needed in the last three overs, Miandad hit a string of boundaries while batting with his team's lower order, until four runs were required from the last delivery of the match. Miandad received a leg side full toss from Chetan Sharma, which he hit for six over the midwicket boundary.[25][26] 1992 Cricket

Pakistan
required 36 runs from 30 balls, which wicketkeeper Moin Khan ended with a towering six over long off, followed by the winning boundary to midwicket. The match is seen as the emergence of Inzamam onto the international stage.[27][28][29] The 1992 Cricket World Cup

Pakistan
lost 3 of their first 5 matches and were nearly eliminated in the first round of the tournament after being bowled out for 74 runs against England, until the match was declared as a "no result" due to rain. Imran Khan famously told the team to play as "cornered tigers", after which Pakistan
Pakistan
won five successive matches, including, most famously, the semi-final against hosts New Zealand and the final against England.[30] 2007 Cricket
Cricket
World Cup[edit] The 2007 Cricket World Cup
Cricket World Cup
was one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history when Pakistan
Pakistan
was knocked out of the competition in a shock defeat to Ireland, who were playing in their first competition. Pakistan, needing to win to qualify for the next stage after losing to the West Indies in their opening match, were put into bat by Ireland. They lost wickets regularly and only 4 batsmen scored double figures. In the end they were bowled out by the Irish for 132 runs. The Irish went on to win the match, after Niall O'Brien scored 72 runs. This meant that Pakistan
Pakistan
had been knocked out during the first round for the second consecutive World Cup.[31][32][33] Tragedy struck the team when coach Bob Woolmer
Bob Woolmer
died one day later on 18 March 2007 in a hospital in Kingston, Jamaica. Jamaican police spokesman, Karl Angell, reported on 23 March 2007 that, "Mr Woolmer's death was due to asphyxiation as a result of manual strangulation" and that, "Mr Woolmer's death is now being treated by the Jamaica police as a case of murder."[34] Assistant coach Mushtaq Ahmed acted as temporary coach for the team's final group game of the tournament.[35] Subsequent to his team's defeat and the death of Woolmer, Inzamam-ul-Haq
Inzamam-ul-Haq
announced his resignation as captain of the team and his retirement from one-day cricket, stating that he would continue to take part in Test cricket but not as captain.[36] Shoaib Malik
Shoaib Malik
was announced as his successor.[37] Following his return to the squad, Salman Butt was appointed as vice-captain until December 2007.[38] On 23 March 2007, Pakistan
Pakistan
players and officials were questioned by Jamaican police and submitted DNA samples along with fingerprints, as part of the routine enquiries in the investigation into Woolmer's murder.[39] Three days after leaving the West Indies for Pakistan, via London, the Pakistan
Pakistan
team were ruled out as suspects. The deputy commissioner of Jamaican police. Mark Shields, the detective in charge of the investigation, announced, "It's fair to say they are now being treated as witnesses." "I have got no evidence to suggest it was anybody in the squad."[40] A memorial service was held in Sacred Heart Church, Lahore, for Bob Woolmer
Bob Woolmer
on 1 April 2007. Among the attendees were Pakistan
Pakistan
players and dignitaries, including Inzamam-ul-Haq, who was quoted as saying, "After Woolmer's family, the Pakistan
Pakistan
team was the most aggrieved by his death."[41] After the World Cup ended, serious doubts were raised about the investigation, with increasing speculation that Woolmer died of natural causes. This has now been accepted as fact, and the case has been closed.[42]

Sri Lanka
won the toss and elected to bat. The first over was bowled by Mohammad Amir. After failing to score off the first four balls – all short – Dilshan went for his scoop and mistimed it, resulting in him being caught at short fine-leg. Soon after this, Jehan Mubarak top edged a delivery by Abdul Razzaq which went high in the air and was caught by Shahzaib Hasan, leaving Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
at 2 for 2.[13] Sanath Jayasuriya was able to stabilise the innings for Sri Lanka

Pakistan's win, often cheered on by crowds of fans from England's Pakistani communities, marked its first world title since Imran Khan's "cornered tigers" had won the 1992 World Cup."We all know how important this World Cup was with so much happening in Pakistan," Afridi said. "The guys motivated themselves for this World Cup." Afridi had a quiet start to the tournament with the bat but responded strongly with match-winning half-centuries in the semi-final and final. He also took 11 wickets in the tournament. He said the support staff, including the head coach Intikhab Alam and bowling coach Aaqib Javed, played a role in shaping the team's victory. "They all really worked hard with the guys and kept them united and close to each other, that's why we had success," Afridi said.

Pakistan
series. In 1988, after West Indies tour where they drew 1-1 (3), Pakistan

were rated as No.1 Test team. It was one of greatest moments in their history. From 1990 to 1999, Pakistan
Pakistan
did even better. They played 29 series, winning over 15 and losing 9 with 5 drawn. In terms of matches, they played 74, winning 40, losing 21 and drawing 13. In this period, the lowest point of for Pakistan
Pakistan
came in 1998 where they lost to Zimbabwe 1-0 in three match series. The biggest moment came in Asian Test Championship in 1998 where they defeated Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
in the final by an innings and 175 runs. 21st century[edit] In 2002, Pakistan
Pakistan
participated in their second Asian Test Championship. It was originally planned to include all four Asian ICC full-members (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan
Pakistan
and Sri Lanka). However, before the tournament started,India's participation was put in doubt. After defeating Bangladesh
Bangladesh
in the 1st Test to meet Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
in the final, they were defeated by them by 8 wickets. One of controversial they had was in 2006 when the team toured England for four match Test series. England
England
led the series 2-0 after three matches before coming in the final match. In that match, however, they were bowled out for 173 and Pakistan
Pakistan
scored 504. In second innings after the dismissal of Alastair Cook
Alastair Cook
for 83 off the bowling of Umar Gul, with a delivery of reverse swing, resulted in umpires Darrell Hair and Billy Doctrove calling a halt to play so a set of used balls could be brought out to the middle. England
England
were awarded 5 penalty runs and this event was the catalyst for the subsequent refusal to continue the match after tea by the Pakistan
Pakistan
team. Based on the laws of cricket, the umpires declared Pakistan
Pakistan
to have forfeited the game. The ICC later changed the result of the match to a draw, and then later reversed this decision on 1 February 2009. 2010 Spot fixing scandal[edit] Main article: Pakistan
Pakistan
cricket spot-fixing scandal The Pakistan
Pakistan
cricket team toured England
England
from 29 July to 22 September 2010. The tour consisted of four Tests, two T20I's and five ODI's. During the Test series, Pakistan
Pakistan
lost the first two Test by 354 runs and 9 wickets. They came back to win the third Test by 4 wickets. However, in fourth Test, the spot-fixing took place. On the third day of the 4th Test, British newspaper News of the World published a story with allegations that an agent loosely affiliated with some of the Pakistani players (later identified as Mazhar Majeed) had accepted a £150,000 (US$232,665) bribe from undercover reporters for information that two Pakistani bowlers ( Mohammad Asif
Mohammad Asif
and Mohammad Amir) would deliberately deliver no balls at specific points during the match. The third player was also caught. It was Pakistan's Test skipper Salman Butt, who was revealed to be the master mind of this case. On 1 November 2011, Asif, Amir and Butt were found guilty for their part in the spot-fixing and were given prison sentences, ranging from six months to 30 months. Under Misbah Ul Haq[edit] After Amir, Asif and Butt were dismissed, Pakistan
Pakistan
made Misbah ul Haq the new captain of Pakistan. In subsequent series against South Africa in the UAE
UAE
he led Pakistan
Pakistan
in tests. After resignation of Shahid Afridi as test captain and suspension of Salman Butt due to spot-fixing scandal, Misbah was preferred over Younus Khan, Mohammad Yousuf and Kamran Akmal
Kamran Akmal
as captain. Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram
stated that although the decision was surprising, if Misbah bats and fields well everything else will go according to plan. Former Pakistan
Pakistan
coach Geoff Lawson stated that he believed Misbah has the best cricketing brain within Pakistan
Pakistan
and he will do incredibly well in the plans for the captaincy Misbah hit back at those who criticised the decision to appoint him captain and stated that he should be given a chance to prove himself. In Misbah's first series against South Africa
South Africa
in UAE
UAE
2010, he led the two match Test series to draw 0-0. Later the team toured New Zealand where they won two match Test series 1-0. Pakistan
Pakistan
also went to West Indies and Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe
for two Match and lone Test match. They drew 1-1 and won 1-0 over West Indies and Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe
respectively. They also won against the touring Sri Lankan team, winning 1-0 (3) and whitewashed Bangladesh
Bangladesh
2-0 (2). One of the most biggest moment for Pakistan
Pakistan
under Misbah's captaincy was when they whitewashed England, the then no.1 side, who toured UAE in early 2012. Mohsin Khan, the Pakistan
Pakistan
coach, compared his team's whitewash against England
England
to the 1992 Cricket World Cup
Cricket World Cup
triumph. "Today is like a dream come true," Mohsin told Sky Sports. "It's not a very experienced team but it's very talented. Today, the captain and all the players have proved they are one of the best in the world. It's a great achievement for the Pakistan
Pakistan
team." Against the South Africa cricket team
South Africa cricket team
in 2013 tour, they were badly whitewashed by the Proteas by 3-0 (3). In first Test, they were bowled out for 49, the worst in their history. That was considered to be worst performance against top side. At the same year, they also got their second defeat to Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe
when Pakistan
Pakistan
toured for two match Test series. The series was drawn 1-1. In early 2014, against Sri Lanka who toured UAE
UAE
for 3 match series, Pakistan
Pakistan
were down 1-0 after two match. In the final match, the first four days went nowhere until the early fifth day when Pakistan
Pakistan
managed to bowl out the Sri Lankan cricket team for 214 and were asked to chase 301 in last two and a half session. Pakistan
Pakistan
chased it down in 57.3 overs, the fastest chase in Test cricket
Test cricket
history. Another greatest performance from Pakistan
Pakistan
is when they whitewashed the touring Australian cricket team. After beating Pakistan
Pakistan
1-0 in T20Is and 3-0 in ODIs, Pakistan
Pakistan
were doubtful to win a two match Test series against the tourist. However, Pakistan
Pakistan
won the matches by 221 runs and 356 runs. The win in the second Test was their highest winning margin against any opposition in their history. Also in the same match, Misbah equaled the then fastest Test match century off 56 deliveries. Against New Zealand, who toured Pakistan
Pakistan
for 3 Test match series. After winning the first Test, Misbah became Pakistan's most successful Test captain win 15 wins, taking over Imran Khan
Imran Khan
and Javed Miandad's joint 14 win record. The series went to draw 1-1 (3). Another moment for Pakistan
Pakistan
under Misbah was when Pakistan
Pakistan
toured Sri Lanka and defeated them in three match Test series. There, it was the first time Pakistan
Pakistan
defeat Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka
after 9 years. And when England
England
toured UAE
UAE
for three match Test series, Pakistan
Pakistan
defeated them 2-0 (3). As a resulted, they climbed to No.2 in Test rankings, also after 9 years. Rise to No.1 and downfall[edit] In 2016, Pakistan
Pakistan
became No.1 Test team after their tour of England, where they drew series 2-2 (4). It was the first time since ranking system where introduce, they were crowned No.1 and first time since 1988. It was another great achievement in Pakistan's Test history. They were also given Test mace in Lahore. However, their No.1 rank was short lived as their downfall began. After winning the series against the West Indies 2-1 (3) in UAE, Pakistan
Pakistan
toured New Zealand and Australia
Australia
for two match and three match Test series. They lost all five matches plus one lost against West Indies. They were down at No.5 in rankings. Misbah was considering retirement after the Australia tour but stayed till West Indies tour, saying he got 'one last job to do'. In the 2017 West Indies tour, consisting of three Tests, five ODIs and four T20Is, Pakistan
Pakistan
won T20I
T20I
series by 3-1 (4) and ODI series by 2-1 (3) with Test series left. Pakistan
Pakistan
won the first Test by 7 wickets. It was memorable match as Younus Khan
Younus Khan
became the first Pakistani batsman to score 10,000 Test runs. Pakistan
Pakistan
lost the next Test by 106 runs when they were chasing 188. In the final Test, Pakistan
Pakistan
won by 101 runs. It was a thrilling end as West Indies needed only 6 balls to survive with last wicket. But it went Pakistan's way as Yasir Shah took the final wicket of Shannon Gabriel. This was Pakistan's first series win in the West Indies, a feat Misbah achieved where no other Pakistani captain could do. Misbah and Younis retired after this series. Misbah ended as Pakistan's most successful Test captains with 26 wins. Governing body[edit] Main article: Pakistan

The women's teams also have a less packed schedule compared to men's teams and play fewer matches. The team played it first match during 1997, when it was on tour of New Zealand and Australia
Australia
and were invited to the World Cup later that year and in the Women's Asia Cup during 2005 the team came third place. During 2007, the team with face South Africa

team; the deal ended at the end of 2012 Asia Cup.[55] Pakistan's One Day and Twenty 20 kits vary from year to year with the team wearing its green color in various shades from kit to kit. Historically, Pakistan's kits have had shades of blue, yellow and golden in addition to green. For official ICC tournaments, 'Pakistan' is written on the front of the jersey in place of the sponsor logo, with the sponsor logo being placed on the sleeve. However, for non-ICC tournaments and matches, the 'Pepsi' logo feature prominently on the front of the shirt . As always the Pakistan Cricket Board
