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.
