Sindh cricket team

The Sindh cricket team was a cricket team representing the province of Sindh in Pakistan.

Sindh's first first-class game was in December 1932, when they drew with Ceylon at the Gymkhana ground in Karachi. From 1934–35 until 1947–48 Sindh participated in the Ranji Trophy. On 27 December 1947 Sind hosted the first first-class game to be played in Pakistan, but were defeated by an innings and 68 runs by Punjab.

In Pakistani domestic cricket, Sindh played in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy each season from 1953–54 to 1956–57, but then made only sporadic appearances at first-class level until the 1970s, when two Sindh teams (Sind A and Sind B) competed in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy for several years; the province also played List A cricket in the United Bank Trophy.

Sindh's last first-class match under that name was a seven-wicket loss in January 1979 against Habib Bank Limited. After that, a "Sind Governor's XI" played three games in the 1980s and one in 2000, while a "Rest of Sindh" team took part in the 2001–02 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy (finishing bottom of Pool A with no wins from eight games) and One Day National Tournament.

Sindh Cricket team has also participated in 2007–08 Pentangular cup and has won it under the captaincy of Shahid Afridi. The other teams were NWFP, Punjab, Federal areas and Baluchistan respectively by their positions. The key players of Sindh are as following:
