[showmyads]Indo-Pak partition lead to the creation of a new country on the map of this world, named as Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Several wars were being fought between the two countries since this partition. There were so many conflicts before and at the time of this separation and even now there are quite intense rivalries present in the field of Hockey, Football and especially in Cricket. The year in which Pakistan became the member of International Cricket Council (ICC) was 1948 just after one year of the formation of country.
Pakistan cricket team’s tour of India in 1952 was their first in Test cricket history. Pakistan lost their first ever test match that played at Delhi.
