ICC wants improved facilities at Peshawar venue


The International Cricket Council (ICC) has advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to improve facilities at the Arbab Niaz Stadium in Peshawar before staging any more international matches there.

A PCB official confirmed to ‘The News’ that after the One-day International (ODI) held against India in Peshawar in February, the ICC had not given high rating to the stadium as an international venue.

The ICC, recently, has come down hard on countries which host matches at venues not said to be up to international requirements.

“They (ICC) told us after the ODI against India that they were not satisfied with the conditions at the stadium in Peshawar and we needed to improve facilities there for the teams, match officials and media,” he added.

Peshawar has regularly hosted international matches in the last few years after some touring teams refused to play in Karachi due to security reasons.

Since 2003, it has hosted a Test against Bangladesh and ODIs against Zimbabwe and India twice.
