Pakistan ground guide: Rawalpindi
ENGLAND IN RAWALPINDI
Cricket in Rawalpindi
31 Oct-2 Nov, Tour match
19 Dec, Fourth ODI
21 Dec, Fifth ODI
The 15,000 capacity Rawalpindi Stadium replaced the Pindi Club ground as the city's international cricket ground 13 years ago.

It is the closest major venue to the national capital, Islamabad, and is also home to pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar.

Pakistan met England in the deciding match of their one-day series in 2000 and came out on top by six wickets.

England only mustered 158 as Saqlain Mushtaq took 5-20 and Pakistan eased home in the 44th over of their reply.

RAWALPINDI FACTS AND FIGURES (ODIs)

  • Pakistan have a magnificent one-day record in Rawalpindi, winning 11 of their 14 matches - only South Africa (twice) and Sri Lanka have beaten them.

  • England met South Africa at the ground during the 1996 World Cup but were bowled out for 152 and lost by 78 runs.

  • Teams batting second have won 10 of the 18 one-dayers at the Rawalpindi Stadium.

  • South Africa's Gary Kirsten made the highest one-day score at the ground - 188 not out off 159 balls against the United Arab Emirates.
