The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has clarified a report carried in a section of media about the condition of Niaz Stadium, Hyderabad.
According to the report, the Cricket Stadium is being used for non-cricketing activities like wedding parties and also as a helipad and is not fit as a venue to host an international match.
PCB said allegations mentioned in the report are totally unfounded and completely baseless.
Pakistan Cricket Board asserts that the stadium is well-maintained and is in very good condition. Since PCB has taken over the ground in June 2007 no such activity has happened there.
Mir Haider Ali Talpur, President Regional Cricket Association Hyderabad said, “Maintenance of stadiums and grounds are a continuous process and PCB is committed to keep all the facilities ready to operate.”
“Additional infrastructure installation is already under process and we are ready to host an international match on the ground on a week’s notice”.
