Pakistan cricket fans create history in England series

The craze for cricket has always been effervescent in Pakistan. However, the recent seven-match Twenty20 International home series against England demonstrates that the sport has fully resurrected from its ashes. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has insights to back up its assertions.

Cricket at the home ground nearly ceased after a shocking setback it received when the Sri Lanka cricket team came under a terrorist attack on March 3, 2009. The world teams shied away from playing in Pakistan. Hence, the floodlights of the country’s sports grounds went off.

However, the Pakistani cricket board has been able to turn this around thanks to the unflappable resilience of the Pakistani people.

The PCB statistics show that the sport-loving fans welcomed the England series and packed the stadium in such a large number that they made history. They were eager to watch live action at their home stadium.
