Rawalpindi proves it, now its Karachi’s turn to show strength


Despite a couple of frustrating days, full marks go to Rawalpindi’s cricket fans the way they stood calm and immensely supported the return of Test cricket in Pakistan after 10 years.

It was houseful, the jam-packed stadium was cheering every single moment they missed at home ground in a decade. Their presence paid off as their heroes displayed quality cricket to make a mark.

Such an amazing and quality show was expected and now it will help the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to convince other teams to have a visit to this cricket-loving nation.

On the other hand, centurions Babar Azam and Abid Ali didn’t leave spectators boring as they kept going to shook record books. Abid became the only batter on the planet to score a century on Test and ODI debut. He scored 109 off 201 deliveries whereas Babar made the most of home conditions to continue his form and register his third Test cricket’s century.


All got done and dusted in Rawalpindi and now its time for Karachi to welcome Test cricket after 10 years. The last complete Test match was played at National Stadium Karachi (NSK) in 2009 between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Later, an incident took place in Lahore which closed the doors of international cricket for Pakistan.

All the preparations have been done and Karachiites are desperately waiting to welcome Sri Lanka and red-ball cricket after a decade. An exciting contest awaits the cricket fans all around the world.
