The Rawalpindi cricket stadium is all set to host first ever Test match in Pakistan in the last decade. Since March 2009, Pakistan has not hosted a single Test match courtesy security concerns. And now as the cricketing doors are opening for Pakistan, the fans have started to get more cricket at home.
Sri Lanka will take on Pakistan in the 1st Test match at the Rawalpindi cricket stadium. The last Test match that this ground hosted was back in 2004 between India and Pakistan. Therefore, the fans in this part of Pakistan will be ecstatic to watch their stars play in front of them.
Pakistani players are also excited to play the Test match in front of their home crowd. Most of the Pakistani players in the playing XI have not played a Test match at home. Therefore, it will be a big occasion not only just for Pakistani players but also for the whole nation.
