The British brought cricket to India in the early 1700s, with the first cricket match played in 1721.[4] The first Indian cricket club was established by the Parsi community in Bombay, in 1848; the club played their first match against the Europeans in 1877.[5] The first official Indian cricket team was formed in 1911 and toured England, where they played English county teams.[6]The India team made their Test debut against England in 1932.[7] Around the same time (1934), the first women's Test was played between England and Australia.[8] However, women's cricket arrived in India much later; the Women's Cricket Association of India was formed in 1973.[9] The Indian women's team played their first Test match in 1976, against the West Indies.[10]

As part of the International Cricket Council's initiative to develop women's cricket, the Women's Cricket Association of India was merged with the Board of Control for Cricket in India in 2006.[11]
