PM Imran Khan has instructed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani to oversee the development of the country’s largest cricket stadium in Islamabad.
According to reports, Mani met with Capital Development Authority (CDA) Chairman Amir Ali Ahmed on Thursday to discuss the timeline for constructing Pakistan’s largest stadium.
The stadium will have a cutting-edge High-Performance Centre.
The stadium survey has been completed by the CDA’s land, planning, and development department. PM Khan will be provided with a comprehensive report by the end of next month. The stadium will be developed in collaboration with the public and commercial sectors with the PM’s permission.
According to Nadeem Khan, PCB’s head of High-Performance, this stadium would be the largest in Asia with first-rate amenities.
“This is a fantastic effort by PM, and we are excited to play a part in it. “The PCB is in contact with the CDA to plan the development of the Islamabad International Cricket Stadium,” he said.
Nadeem also mentioned that there is a proposal in the works to enhance seating capacity at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in the near future.
PM Imran Khan paid a visit to the Korang Cricket Ground, where he assessed the progress of construction while promising more venues for fresh blood.
