These days Cricket fever has gripped every Cricket playing nation around the globe. The T-20 World Cup is being played currently and is the focus of every cricket fan. Cricket in Pakistan has a history of even before the creation of the country. Following the independence of Pakistan in 1947, cricket in the country developed steadily and Pakistan was given Test match status at a meeting of the Imperial Cricket Conference at Lord’s Cricket Ground in England on 28 July 1952. The first captain of the Pakistan national cricket team was Abdul Kardar.

The Pakistan cricket team (Urdu: پاکستان کرکٹ  ٹیم ), nicknamed as Green Shirts, is the national cricket team of Pakistan. Represented by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the team is a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC), and participates in Test, One Day Internationals (ODI’s) and Twenty20 International cricket matches. The Pakistan Cricket Board is responsible for all first class and Test cricket played in Pakistan and by the Pakistan cricket team. It was admitted to the International Cricket Council in July 1953. The corporation has been run by former cricketers, professional administrators and trustees, who are often respected businessmen. The Board governs a network of teams sponsored by corporations, banks, city associations and clubs. Currently Pakistan is ranked number four as per the ICC Test rankings. Pakistan was the 1992 World Cup champion, came runners-up in the 1999 World Cup tournament and is the current Asian Champion. Pakistan, in conjunction with other countries on the subcontinent, has hosted the 1987 & 1996 World Cup tournaments with the 1996 World Cup final being hosted at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Pakistan won the 2009 ICC Twenty20 World Cup and came runners-up in the inaugural tournament in 2007.

The team is considered a strong but unpredictable team. Traditionally Pakistani cricket has been filled with players of great talent but limited discipline, making them a team which could play inspirational cricket one day and then perform less than ordinarily another day. Over the years, competitions between India and Pakistan have always been emotionally charged and provide for intriguing contests, as talented teams and players from both sides of the border elevate their game to new levels to produce high-quality cricket.
