Original 1954 "Crickets from Pakistan" Tour of England Souvenir Book (24pgs)

• Original, Rare
• Condition: Natural Wear / Fair

Pakistan's entry into international cricket occurred in 1952 when the national team played its first Test match against India. This historic moment marked the beginning of Pakistan's journey in international cricket, and the team quickly gained recognition for its competitive spirit and talented players. In 1954, Pakistan became a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC), solidifying its status as a significant cricketing nation on the global stage.

From that same historical year, this very rare and original 1954 "Cricketers From Pakistan" 24 page paperback is the official "Tour of England Souvenir Book" and a collector or Pakistani cricket enthusiast's treasure.

As the newly formed state ventured into the uncharted territory of international cricket, this team carried the hopes, aspirations, and pride of a nation finding its footing on the global stage.

In the 1954 Oval Test against England, Fazal Mahmood, the talented fast bowler, played a pivotal role in Pakistan's first Test victory. His exceptional bowling performance, taking 12 wickets in the match, played a crucial role in Pakistan's historic win by 24 runs. This triumph was a significant achievement for the team, showcasing its potential and setting the stage for future successes.

The team of 1954 became a catalyst, igniting a passion for cricket that would transcend generations, laying the foundation for the cricketing legacy that Pakistan cherishes today
