The 2019 Pakistan Cup was the fourth edition of the Pakistan Cup, a List A cricket competition which was contested between five teams. It was held from 2 to 12 April 2019,[1] with all the matches played at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.[2] The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) stated that the top performers in the tournament would be considered for the 2019 Cricket World Cup in England.[3]

Federal Areas were the defending champions,[4] but they lost their first three matches of the tournament, therefore eliminating them from competition.[5] On 9 April 2019, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa beat Sindh by nine runs to advance to the final of the tournament.[6] The result meant that Baluchistan also progressed to the final, regardless of the outcome of their last match against Federal Areas.[7] Khyber Pakhtunkhwa won the tournament, to win their second title, after beating Balochistan by nine runs in the final.[8][9]

Squads[edit]

Prior to the start of the tournament, the PCB named the following squads:[10]

Baluchistan[11] Federal Areas[12] Khyber Pakhtunkhwa[13] Punjab[14] Sindh[15]
