Assam played their first first-class match in the 1948-49 Ranji Trophy, captained by Rupert Kettle, who also scored their first century two seasons later. They had their first victory in the 1951-52 Ranji Trophy, when they beat Orissa by 103 runs; the captain, Peter Bullock, top-scored in each innings with 31 and 148, and took 7 for 70 and 3 for 29.
Until the 2002–03 season, when the zonal system was abandoned, Assam formed part of East Zone, and never progressed further than the pre-quarter-finals. They won their plate group in 2006/07 before losing the semi-final to Orissa. In the 2009–10 season Assam entered the elite group of the Ranji Trophy, and topped the plate group and subsequently progressed to the Super League. However, in the 2010–11 season, they ended at the bottom of their group in the Super League and were relegated to the Plate League for the next season. In the 2012-13 Vijay Hazare Trophy Assam played extremely well and finished runners-up. In the 2014-15 Ranji season Assam were again promoted to Group A level. In the 2015–16 Ranji Trophy, the team reached the semi-final for the first time in their history.
