Multan Cricket Stadium

Multan Cricket Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Multan (Punjab, Pakistan) but mostly used for cricket matches and owned by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). It is located off Vehari Road with a capacity of 35,000 and considers as the largest stadium in Pakistan.

The first test match played in this stadium on 29-31 August 2001 was between Pakistan and Bangladesh for the Asian Test Championship. Pakistan vs. West Indies played the last test match on 19-23 November 2006. The stadium hosts both forms of international cricket, ODI and Test cricket.

First ODI held between Pakistan and Bangladesh on 9 September 2003, and the last ODI played by Pakistan and Bangladesh on 16 April 2008.

It is built as a replacement for the Ibn-e-Qasim Bagh Stadium located in the heart of Multan and inaugurated in 2001. Floodlights also installed here to make day/night cricket matches possible. The first day/night game played at this ground was between India and Pakistan. Still, the floodlights were not needed for the inaugural match as India rounded off a quick victory over Pakistan.
