    Favorite game

    Pakistan has been world champion of Cricket and has also hosted world championship once. Cricket is not only famous in Lahore but it is famous every where in Pakistan. I have even seen kids playing cricket in the remote mountains of Pakistan. You will see people of all ages from kids to adults playing this game in streets. On Sundays when traffic is low, people even play this game on prime roads.

    If you see a group of youngsters playing Cricket on a weekend, do ask them for a knock on the bat, they will warmly welcome you to play with them.

    A cricket match in progress

    All over the Indian subcontinent, the game of cricket is like a religion.
    Gaddafi stadium in Lahore, is the home of Pakistan cricket. It was completely renovated during 1995/96 for the 1996 World Cup, when it hosted the final match.
    The Pakistan Cricket Board is also based in the stadium complex.

  • CRICKET BABY!

    by wendeth Written Apr 22, 2005

    While I was lucky enough to see the first games played by women in the Lahore Cricket Stadium, it was also exciting to see what is rated one of the best statdiums in the world. I am told Lahore men's team has yet to lose a home game. Best check out the stadium even if you dont' catch a game, it's well worth the trip. Also near by is the field hockey stadium. This is the man who gets the fan's going. He's so popular that he even travels around with the team, "mr. cricket". I promise I'll get you pics of the actual stadium uploaded.

    Equipment: Your camera.

    Pakistan VS New Zealand on 29th Nov' 03, Pak Won !

    There are many Cricket Stadiums all over the country. Especially in every major city of Pakistan there are international cricket stadiums such as Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Multan, Peshawar, Quetta, Sheikhupura, Sialkot, Gujranwala, Hyderabad, etc. etc. The Best ones among all of these are the first 3 Lahore, Karachi & Rawalpindi. They have fast and run-scoring cricket pitches where ball also turn and people enjoy the cricket at its best !

    Cricket is not Just-a-Game

    Here in Pakistan Cricket is not just a game, it is much more than it. People will watch it even if they have to leave school, college or office if possible ;-) It is as important to us as football is to Europeans.

    If you know anything about Cricket and you are in Lahore on a Cricket match day then you should definitely go to the stadium to see 'Worlds Fastest Bowler - Shoiab Akhtar' in Action. He is just amazing ! it is very interesting to watch him run so hard to bowl fast and take wickets.

    Gaddafi Stadium...Lahore

    Yeah! chukday phatay.......this is what you hear when someone hits a boundry in Gaddafi Cricket stadium. People just go crazy when they are watching the game of cricket specialy against arch rival India. You will see a television in every shop & every caffee when the match is on. On Friday & Sunday most of the streets & grounds are full of boys playing Cricket.
    As Pakistan is the best exporter of Sports gear in the World you can buy any kind of sports gear from the soprts shops all around Lahore specially in Gulberg where there are few well known shops.

    Since Pakistan won the world cup Cricket tournament, the enthusiasm of this nation has been growing to great hights. Day-night cricket mathes are sometimes played in Lahore and when this happens, people are either glued to the TV sets at home or are present in the stadium to witness the matches. There is an atmosphere of complete jubilation in the stadium, especially if Pakistan is playing. And, in case there is a Pakistan-India fixture, I think almost everyone can imagine the excitement and tension.
