Indian Cricket History

Though the first match in India was recorded in 1721, when a group of sailors gathered to play in Western India, India's national didn't play their first Test match until 25 June 1932 at Lord's. They became the sixth team to play Test cricket. Traditionally much stronger at home than abroad, India proved weaker than Australia and England, winning only 35 of the 196 matches they played in their first fifty years. The team gained strength near the end of the 50-year period with the emergence of players such as Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev and the Indian spin quartet. The Indian team has continued to be highly ranked since then in Test cricket and One-Day Internationals. The team won the Cricket World Cup in 1983 and was runners-up in 2003. It also won the first World Twenty20 in 2007.


The 'Indian ' represents India, and is selected and controlled by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, a society registered under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act. BCCI administers the game in India and lays down its laws. The Indian is currently the highest paid national sports team in the world (in terms of sponsorship).
The current team contains many of the world's leading players, including Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Anil Kumble, who hold numerous cricketing world records. As of August 2007, the team is ranked third in the ICC Test Championship and in fifth place in the ICC ODIs. They are the current Twenty20 world champions.
