Pakistan’s first ever AstroTurf cricket stadium unveiled in Chaman
Commander Southern Command Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa inaugurated the stadium by playing a shot, before handing it over to the cricket association.
A friendly match between Chaman XI and Qilla Abdullah XI was also played at the country’s stadium.
The ground has three stands as of now, but the management has shown interest in expanding the capacity later on.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Lt Gen Asim Bajwa said Balochistan was beginning to see progress, and many great cricket stars would be visiting soon.
“Peace is visible everywhere. Wherever we go, people ask for good educational institutes and roads,” Lt Gen Asim Bajwa said.
The armed forces of Pakistan have worked for peace and development everywhere, he said, adding that they would support the Balochistan government.
