The Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) cricket team is a first-class cricket side in Pakistan that plays in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Patron's Trophy, Pentangular Trophy and also competes in limited-overs cricket.[1]

History

Water and Power Development Authority first competed at first-class level in the 1975–76 season, but they did not become a permanent part of top-level domestic competitions until the 1997–98 Patron's Trophy, when they finished last out of eight, without a win.[2] They became more successful in the twenty-first century, and won several trophies. After their final season in 2018–19 they had played 219 first-class matches, for 88 wins, 51 losses, 79 draws and one tie.[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 Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was criticised in removing departmental sides, with players voicing their concern to revive the teams.[5] However, in August 2023, the PCB announced of return departmental cricket with the start of 2023–24 President's Trophy, therefore resuming the participation of the team.[6]
