History of India National Cricket Team

Indian cricket team has a rich history and legacy. It was the 18th century when cricket was introduced by European sailors to India. The first cricket club was established in 1792 in the country.

India National Cricket Team became the ICC full member in 1926 but had to wait until 1932 to play their first Test match on 25th June at the 'Mecca' of Cricket Lord's Cricket Stadium. Colonel CK Naidu was the first-ever captain of India men's national cricket team and he led the team in 4 Test matches which were played against England. India became only the 6th nation to play Test match cricket after England, Australia, South Africa, West Indies, and New Zealand.

India's breakthrough was definitely the 1983 World Cup triumph where Kapil Dev-led Team India achieved the unimaginable. Ever since the inception of the World Cup in 1975, India became the first ever nation apart from West Indies to win the elusive Cup.

Talking about the current India cricket squad, Virat Kohli is the captain across formats, whereas Ravi Shastri is the head coach. In his tenure as captain, the Indian cricket team has achieved rare heights including the numero-uno position in Test cricket for more than 2 years.

India men's national cricket team in World Cups

Having won two ODI World Cups along with two Champions Trophy and a T20 World Cup, India has won all ICC mega events, at least once. India were crowned the champions of the world in 1983 and 2011, under the leadership of Kapil Dev and MS Dhoni respectively.

The inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup which took place in the year 2007 in South Africa was won by India. Men in Blue entered the tournament as the underdogs under an amateur leadership of MS Dhoni who was leading the side for the very first time. Winning the title was more than a statement and it also underlined the new dawn of team India.

ICC Champions Trophy, also known as the mini World Cup, India were the joint trophy holders along with Sri Lanka in 2002 in a match where rain played a spoilsport. In the year 2013, under the premier leadership of MS Dhoni, one of the most decorated captains of Indian cricket, Indian national cricket team lifted the ICC Champions Trophy for the second time.
