The Pakistan National Basketball Team (Urdu: پاکستان باسکٹ بال‎) is the basketball team representing Pakistan in international competitions, organised and run by the Pakistan Basketball Federation.[2]

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. In the last decades, Pakistan has been a force at the regional stage as the team won the Silver Medal at the 2013 SABA Championship and three silver medals at the South Asian Games.[3]
