IND Bio

The Indian Cricket Team is governed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the governing body of cricket in the country. The first recorded match in India was in 1721 when a group of sailors gathered to play in Western India. However, it was only on 25th June 1932 at the famous Lord’s cricket ground in England that a national team played an official Test match. Only the sixth team to play Test cricket, India is known to be traditionally strong on its home soil while not really making an impact on away tours. In the first 50 years of their playing history, India won only 35 of the 196 matches played. But it’s heartening to note much has changed over the past few years.

With the emergence of cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev, Indian cricket went from strength to strength. The 1983 ICC Cricket World Cup was definitely a high point not just in cricket, but in Indian sporting history as well. The current team comprises of some of the world’s finest cricketers to have ever played the game. The likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble and Sourav Ganguly have brought much glory for the country with their stellar contributions.

With the advent of the Twenty20 cricket, a new breed of cricketers also took centre-stage in the form of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, etc. Winning the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in 2007 was a special moment in India’s cricketing annals. But the biggest moment of glory came on 2nd April 2011 when India beat Sri Lanka in the finals of the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and went on to become world champions. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, an Indian team made history after 28 long years and gave its multitude of fans much to cheer about.
