The Future of Cricket in Pakistan
Cricket is a very popular sport in Pakistan and the number of cricket stadiums in the country is likely to increase in the future. This is because the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is committed to promoting the sport and providing world-class facilities for players and spectators.
The PCB has also been working to improve security at cricket matches in Pakistan. This has led to an increase in the number of international cricket teams touring the country.
With the improvement in security and the increasing number of cricket stadiums, Pakistan is well-positioned to become a major cricketing power in the world.
