Pindi Club Ground

Pindi Club Ground is a multi-use stadium in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. It is used mostly for cricket matches. The first ever double century here was scored in 1893 by the grandson of Queen Victoria, Prince Christian Victor who was then posted in the army at Rawalpindi. He scored 205 runs against Devonshire Regiment while playing for King's Royal Rifles.[1] The stadium has the capacity to hold 15,000 people and hosted its first and only international Test Match in 1965.[2] In April 2018, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that the venue, along with several others in the country, would get a makeover to get them ready for future international matches and fixtures in the Pakistan Super League.[3]
