The Pakistan National Basketball Team is the basketball team representing Pakistan in international competitions, organised and run by the Pakistan Basketball Federation.[1] (Urdu: پاکستان باسکٹ بال)

Its biggest success came at the Asian Championship in 1979 where Team Pakistan surprisingly finished 6th, ahead of teams such as Team Iran, which did not qualify for the event and Team Malaysia. Further, Pakistan's basketball team won three silver medals at the South Asian Games.[2]
