History

Following the Partition of India in 1947, and the establishment of the separate nation state of Pakistan, 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 on 28th July 1952. Pakistan's first Test match was played in Delhi in October 1952 as part of a five Test series which India won 2-1. Pakistan made their first tour of England in 1954 and drew the series 1-1 after a memorable victory at The Ovel in which fast bowler Fazal Mahmood took 12 wickets. Pakistan's first home Test match was in Dacca in East Pakistan (present day Bangladesh) in January 1955 againat India and four more Test matches were to follow in Bahawalpur, Lahore, Peshawar and Karachi (all five matches in that series were drawn).

Records

Pakistan has produced many excellent bowlers such as Fazal Mahmood, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and Shoaib Akhtar. Pakistan's bowlers are known for developing and perfecting the art of reverse swing bowling, said to be invented by Sarfaraz Nawaz, to a high degree of proficiency.

Pakistan rose to prominence and began to be considered very seriously under the captaincy of Imran Khan who led the 1992 World Cup winning team.

Some of Pakistan's most memorable matches have been the Limited Overs Internationals (LOI)and test matches, it has played against the neighboring nation of India. Although it has been very difficult to predict whether Pakistan would win a match against India on a given day, it has won 58 of the 95 ODIs it has played against India. However it has been unable to break the jinx of losing to India in the crucial World cup matches, having lost to India in the 1992, 1996, 1999 and 2003 editions and being eliminated because of it in 1996 and 2003.

During the tour of India in 1997 the Pakistan team consistently outperformed the opposing side on their home turf. Batsman Saeed Anwar put on a show of brilliant batting performance scoring a world record 194 in a single ODI against their archrival Indian cricket team.

1986 Austral-asia Cup

Pakistan won the 1986 Australasia Cup against India in style with Javed Miandad emerging as the National Hero and a World Class Cricketer.

The Pakistanis had managed to make it to the final, and were up against India. India batted first and set a target of 245 runs, leaving the Pakistanis with a required run rate of 4.92 per over. Javed Miandad  came in to bat at number 3 and managed to bat till the end. On the last ball, four runs were required and Miandad hit a six that sealed the victory for Pakistan. His famous last ball six against India in Sharjah is still considered as one of the most historic moments in one-day cricket history

 

England tour in 2005

The mighty English took on the Pakistan cricket team after beating the world champions (Australia). After the historical Ashes win, the England cricket team which was on an all time high and was looking to continue their stature as the top team on the globe by beating the Pakistani side on their home ground. The Pakistanis where also looking forword to continue their winning streak which has been going on since their last clash with the West Indies cricket team. The series began on the 12th of November with the 1st test match and continued throughout November and December with 3 test matches and 5 ODI s, the 1st one on the 10th of December and the series finishing off with the 5th ODI on the 21st of December.
