Bahawal Stadium History

The stadium was originally named the Dring Stadium and was named after the second Prime Minister of Bahawalpur, Sir John Dring. Dring was Prime Minister under Nawab Sadiq V and served in this role from 1948 to 1952. Dring Stadium was ahead of its time and was the only completed stadium in Pakistan at that time.

International venue

It was the first cricket ground in West Pakistan to host a Test match, when it hosted the Indian cricket team’s second Test in Pakistan in 1954–55, India’s maiden tour of Pakistan. However, this was the only Test match to be held at this ground. As of 2002, 155 first-class matches and 23 List A matches have been played at this ground.


As the Bahawalpur cricket team has not had first-class status since 2002-03, there was only one first-class match and one List A match here over the ensuing three seasons, but the ground still hosts under-19 matches . Bahawal Stadium was a place of war before.

This stadium was also ranked as the second largest stadium in Asia by area.
