International cricket stadium has been planned to be constructed in Islamabad for hosting cricket matches and the project is scheduled to be completed in 2014. The land is 35 acres which is reserved for the building of cricket international stadium. There are also findings that Pakistan Cricket Board head quarter will also changed from Lahore and Islamabad international stadium would be the new head quarters of Pakistan Cricket Board.
Capital Development Authority & Pakistan Cricket Board has already developed a consensus and has already signed the pact. Both will take the lead in constructing the stadium. Pakistan cricket board will give sixty lac rupees to Capital Development Authority for 45 acres.
Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is the the only international level cricket stadium that is near to Islamabad, but after the construction of International Islamabad Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium will become a secondary stadium in the adjoining regions.
