India National Cricket Team: a living sporting legend
Cricket has a long and proud history in India, with the India National Cricket Team known as one of the international giants in this complex and challenging sport. While traditionally strongest at home, recent years have seen the team dramatically improve their overseas game and set several records with their latest wins. Watch this sporting phenomenon with India National Cricket Team tickets available to purchase or sell on StubHub.
The proud career of India National Cricket Team
The history of the India National Cricket Team goes back to the 19th century, when the Parsis of Bombay (now Mumbai) played their first international match against England Cricket. The sport had been introduced by the British in the early 1700s and soon gained in popularity - nowadays, it is the most beloved sport in the country. Despite this long history, the India National Cricket Team only gained Test status in 1932, becoming the sixth team to do so and playing their first test match against England at Lord's Cricket Ground. It may have been a slow start, but international cricket would now be unthinkable without the India National Cricket Team. At one time or another they have been ranked number one in the world in Test, ODI and T20I cricket, and in 2011 became the third team ever to win the ICC Cricket World Cup twice (after West Indies Cricket and the Australia National Cricket Team). This triumph also saw them become the only team to ever win the World Cup on home turf - perhaps not much of a surprise, given the team's reputation as being far stronger at home than abroad. But having much improved their play away from home, you'll find tickets to India National Cricket Team incredibly rewarding wherever the match is being held.
Don't miss any Men in Blue matches
India National Cricket Team is known as the 'Men in Blue', thanks to their choice of blue - in varying shades - as their primary colour. One of the most famous players to ever don the uniform is, of course, Sachin Tendulkar, who began his international career at the tender age of sixteen and now holds numerous world records for appearances, runs scored and centuries. Tendulkar and his sporting colleagues like Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble - one of the greatest India National Cricket Team bowlers - have all done much to spread the popularity of the sport across the country, with many young players seeking to emulate their successes. With such a strong following, there's always bound to be a terrific atmosphere at India National Cricket Team matches, no matter whether they are played at one of the numerous international grounds in India or at a venue abroad.
