Imran Khan, Clive Lloyd and Ali Bacher Full of Praise about Dubai Sports City Stadium

Five match ODI series between Pakistan and Australia kicked off yesterday (22 April 2009) with the first match being held in the Dubai Sports City stadium. This has been the first international cricket match in the Dubai Sports City stadium, Dubai. Naturally, the local crowds were full of excited with this match and there were many Pakistani cricket fans as many Pakistani people reside in this city. To be honest, Pakistani cricketers must have felt a homely environment in the ground. With all modern facilities available in the stadium, it seems that the stadium has become a big contender to host Pakistan’s home test matches.

Pakistani bowling great Imran Khan has also spoken of highly regarding this new stadium, stating that the beautiful stadium and its innovative lights will add to the attraction of the game. Mr. Khan has also said that the condition is very similar to Pakistan, where the series was supposed to take place.

Former West Indies great Clive Lloyd opened this stadium last year when the construction work of the stadium was completed. Ali Bacher, former captain of South African cricket team, has added that the stadium has come at the right time for Pakistan cricket.
