The Peshawar cricket team is a Pakistani first-class cricket team from Peshawar. The team's home ground is Arbab Niaz Stadium, Peshawar. They participate in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. It was refounded in the 2023/24 season after a revamp of the domestic structure.[1][2]


Before 2023

The List A and Twenty20 side was known as the Peshawar Panthers.

Peshawar first played in first-class competitions in 1956–57, and they have competed in most seasons since then, except for a hiatus between 1977–78 and 1983–84. Apart from a few matches played by North-West Frontier Province in the 1970s, Peshawar were usually the only first-class team from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province (formerly known as North-West Frontier Province) until the debut of Abbottabad in 2005–06.

Peshawar won the Quaid-i-Azam Trophy in 1998-99 and 2004–05 and the ABN-AMRO Cup National One-day Championship in 2006–07. They also won the 2011-12 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy Division Two.

In first-class cricket to the end of 2013 they had played 262 matches, with 82 wins, 99 losses, 80 draws and one tie.[3] Their highest individual score is 300 not out, by Shoaib Khan against Quetta in 2003–04.[4] Their best bowling figures are 9 for 62 by Safiullah Khan against Railways B in 1971–72.[5]

In List A cricket they have played 73 times, with 22 wins, 49 losses, one tie and one no-result.[6]

In January 2017, they won the 2016–17 Regional One Day Cup, beating Karachi Whites by 124 runs in the final.[7]

Since 2023

In 2023, the Peshawar cricket team was refounded as part of the restructuring of the Pakistani domestic system.[1][2]
