List of Karachi first-class cricket teams

  (Redirected from Karachi Harbour cricket team)

Karachi cricket teams compete in the Pakistani first-class cricket tournaments the Patron's Trophy and Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

TeamsEdit

Owing to the strength of cricket in Karachi, from the 1956–57 season the Karachi City Cricket Association has usually fielded two, sometimes three, first-class teams. (Lahore has done the same from the 1957–58 season.) The names of the teams have varied. In the 1956–57 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy the teams were Karachi Whites (who lost the final), Karachi Blues (defeated by Karachi Whites in a semi-final) and Karachi Greens. In 2014–15 the two latest team names made their debuts: Karachi Dolphins (in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy Gold League) and Karachi Zebras (in the Silver League).
