History

Sharmeen and Shaiza Khans brought women's cricket to Pakistan in 1996. However, the government refused them permission to play matches for religious concerns. They were eventually granted permission and played their debut match against New Zealand in 1997. They lost every match on this tour. The Pakistani squad also competed in the 2007 World Cup, which was held in India, and finished last out of 11 teams.

The first international victory occurred in 2001, against the Netherlands. The Pakistan Cricket Board formed a Women's Wing in 2005 to oversee all cricket matters. In 2005, Pakistan hosted the second edition of the Women's Asia Cup.

Pakistan made its One Day International (ODI) debut against New Zealand in early 1997, and later that year competed in the 1997 World Cup in India. In April 1998, the squad played its first Test match against Sri Lanka. Pakistan was one of the least competitive top-level women's teams in its early years, and following its debut in 1997, it did not qualify for another World Cup until the 2009 edition in Australia. However, the squad has competed in all four editions of the Women's World Twenty20, as well as the Women's Asia Cup and the Asian Games cricket tournaments.

The rise in terrorism as a result of the war on terror has slowed the number of international teams visiting Pakistan. However, due to a drop in terrorism and an increase in security in Pakistan over the last few years, the West Indies women's cricket team and the Bangladesh women's national cricket team have toured Pakistan many times since 2015.
