Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium
Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is an international standard cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. This stadium has recently been expanded to cater to the ever-increasing number of spectators for the game. With the increase in capacity, it can now hold around 28,000 spectators.The stadium hosted its first Test match in 1993.
Pakistan, with an eye on the World Cup of 1996, unveiled new Test venue for the second Test against Zimbabwe in 1992 in Rawalpindi. Karachi staged Pakistan's first Test match and now Rawalpindi becomes the country's 14th Test ground.
Perched on the edge of the city of almost four million people and only three miles away from the capital Islamabad, the newly-built ground has seating for 15,000 people. Rawalpindi was used last January for the fifth and final one-day international against Sri Lanka, which Pakistan won by 117 runs to win the one-day series by a margin of 4:1.
