Higher Education Commission cricket team is a departmental cricket team in Pakistan, that plays first-class cricket in the President's Trophy. The team is sponsored and owned by Higher Education Commission.[1] The team does not have any geographical base.[2] It is currently being captained by Mohammad Huraira.


The team was founded in 2003 to take part in the 2003 Inter Departmental Qualifying Tournament.[3] In May 2019, Pakistan's prime minister Imran Khan revamped the domestic cricket structure in Pakistan, excluding departmental teams in favour of regional sides, therefore ending the participation of the team.[4] The team was refounded in March 2023 after a revamp of the domestic structure.[5][6] In December 2023, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed that Higher Education Commission would be one of the teams to participate in the 2023–24 President's Trophy.[7] The team made their first-class debut on 22 December 2023, losing the match against Water and Power Development Authority.[8] This was the first time for Higher Education Commission to compete in a major domestic tournament in Pakistan.[9]
