Profile

Built as a replacement for the Qasim Bagh stadium, Multan Cricket Stadium hosted its first Test match in 2001 when Pakistan took on Bangladesh in the Asian Test Championship. Boasting one of the greenest outfields visible in the country, Multan Cricket Stadium also played host to one memorable Pakistan-India Test that saw Virender Sehwag smash a career-best 309 and enable India to inflict an innings defeat over Pakistan.

The 30,000-capacity stadium is also able to hold day-night matches with a set of floodlights installed at the venue. The floodlights, however, were not needed for the inaugural match as India rounded off a quick victory over Pakistan.

 

History

The stadium was inaugurated in the year 2001, before which the Ibn-e-Qasim Bagh Stadium was the major stadium in the region of Multan.

The first ODI and Test match played on this stadium was between the hosts Pakistan and Bangladesh.

 

Major Matches

The stadium hosted one of the most memorable matches in cricket for India. In a match between India and Pakistan in the year 2004, Virender Sehwag became the first Indian to score a test triple hundred. He scored 309 runs in the field of Multan Cricket Stadium.

 

Controversy

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar scored a century during the second day's play in the first test match between India and Pakistan in Multan in the year 2004. Sachin was nearing his double hundred, and was on 194 runs, when Indian skipper Rahul Dravid declared the innings.

The match triggered stories of serious differences between Dravid and Tendulkar, but the two laughed it off as an honest difference in the dressing room.
