Named after Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy is Pakistan's premier first-class competition and was introduced in 1953 to help pick the squad for Pakistan's Test tour of England in the forthcoming year. The competition has been contested sometimes by regional teams, sometimes by departments, and sometimes by a mixture of the two. Seven regional teams competed in the first competition. However, in 1956-57, it was decided that Karachi and Punjab would have to enter three teams each, in order to make the teams more evenly matched.
