Pakistan ground guide: Multan
ENGLAND GAMES IN MULTAN
12-16 Nov, First Test
The Multan Stadium is Pakistan's newest Test venue, having staged its first five-day match only four years ago.

Five Pakistan batsmen, including local boy Inzamam-ul-Haq, scored a century in the same innings as Bangladesh were thrashed by an innings and 264 runs.

It was a very different story against the same opponents two years later as Pakistan scraped home by one wicket.

In 2004, India played their first Test in Pakistan for 14 years and inflicted an innings defeat on the home side.

MULTAN FACTS AND FIGURES (TESTS)

  • Pakistan have yet to win the toss in a Multan Test - and on each occasion have had to bowl first.

  • Four Pakistan bowlers conceded more than 100 runs - and Saqlain Mushtaq more than 200 - when Virender Sehwag's 309 off 375 saw India to a total of 675-5 declared in April last year.

  • Inzamam-ul-Haq's 138 not out against Bangladesh two years ago is the highest score by a Pakistan batsman at the ground.

  • There have been four instances of bowlers taking five or more wickets in an innings, all involving spinners. Pakistan's Danish Kaneria had match figures of 12-94 against Bangladesh in 2001 - six wickets in each innings.
