The Himachal Pradesh cricket team is a domestic cricket team based in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It has competed in the Ranji Trophy since the 1985–86 season.

Playing history[edit]

Himachal Pradesh lost all five of their matches in both 1985-86 and 1987-88 seasons by an innings.[1] They won for the first time when they beat Services by one wicket in 1990-91.[2] In 2006-07 Himachal Pradesh won the Plate Group of the Ranji Trophy, beating Orissa in the final[3] after finishing top of their group.

As of early November 2016 Himachal Pradesh had played 183 Ranji Trophy matches with 31 wins, 82 losses and 70 draws.[4]

Most of Himachal Pradesh's home games are played at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala.

In the 2016–17 Ranji Trophy, Himachal Pradesh recorded their lowest total in the competition when they were bowled out for 36 runs against Hyderabad on 28 October 2016.[5]
