Multan Cricket StadiumEdit profile
Multan Cricket Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Multan, Punjab, Pakistan. The stadium is located off Vehari Road, in the suburbs of Multan. Having such a lush green outfield and playing area, the stadium is probably the most beautiful in the country at the moment. It is primarily used for cricket matches. The stadium holds 30,000, and hosted its first test match in 2001, Pakistan against Bangladesh for the Asian Test Championship. The stadium hosts both forms of international cricket: Test cricket and One Day International.
The ground was inaugurated in 2001 as a replacement for the Ibn-e-Qasim Bagh Stadium located in the heart of Multan. Flood lights were recently installed to make Day/Night matches possible. The first Day/Night game played at this ground was between arch-rivals India and Pakistan.Records
