The resumption of cricket in the country after a long hiatus has fans excited. Pakistan’s current tour of South Africa is in full swing and more international teams have expressed a desire to tour the country.
Britain announced a tour of Pakistan in October this year, and Australia and New Zealand are expected to visit over the next two years.
According to the results of the Pakistan Cricket Council (PCB), Pakistan intends to host major ICC events over the next decade. With this in mind, Pakistan is trying to increase the number of cricket stadiums in the country to accommodate visiting teams.
The Gwadar Cricket Stadium attracted the ICC’s attention for its stunning beauty, and many have asked PCB to make it an international stadium. Another beautiful potential stadium is at Pisan in Nagar in Gilgit-Baltistan.
The Pakistan-led government of Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) in Gilgit-Baltistan has announced that it will build an international stadium on the beautiful site. The Prime Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan, Mohamed Khalid Khurshid Khan, announced the decision on Twitter.
The Prime Minister recently met with PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani, where it was decided to build a stadium on the site.
Former fast bowler Umar Gul took the spotlight and posted a photo of the floor on his official Twitter account. Gul urged the cricket board and provincial government to consider this as a potential venue for international cricket. His request was approved and the Prime Minister tagged it in his tweet too.
