The Jharkand Cricket Team is a Ranji Trophy Plate team based in the Indian state of Jharkhand.[1][2][3] The team was formerly known as the Bihar cricket team. When the old state of Bihar was split up, the team was renamed as much of the cricketing infrastructure was in the new state of Jharkand.


Jharkhand State Cricket Association was formed on November 15, 2000 and the made List A debut in December 2004 against Saurashtra in 2004/05 Ranji Trophy at Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground, Rajkot as they match was drawn.

The team won the 2010/11 Vijay Harare Trophy against Gujarat at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. Jharkhand batted first and were boosted by several useful contributions from their batsmen while Gujarat in their reply failed to measure up against a dominating bowling performance to sink to a 159-run defeat.[4]
