Pindi Club Ground, also known as Army Sports Ground, is a multi-purpose stadium in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. It is mainly used for cricket matches. The stadium has the capacity to hold 15,000 people and hosted its first and only international test match in 1965. It also hosted a match as part of the 1987 Cricket World Cup.

It was the only cricket ground in Rawalpindi capable of hosting international matches before the establishment of the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in 1992.


Pindi Club Ground History

The first double century here was scored in 1893 by Queen Victoria’s grandson, Prince Christian Victor, who was then stationed in the army in Rawalpindi. He scored 205 runs against the Devonshire Regiment while playing for the King’s Royal Rifles. The ground also hosted the Marylebone Cricket Club for two matches, one against the Europeans and the other against Rawalpindi Sports Club, in November 1926.

The first foreign team to visit the ground after Pakistani independence in 1947 was Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) which faced the Commander-in-Chief XI in March 1950. More national team tours followed soon after.

India’s first tour of Pakistan in 1955, which was the first Test series to be played in Pakistan, also involved a tour match against a Combined Services team in February 1955. Other international tours to Pakistan often involved matches with three-day practice against locals. teams, which were hosted by the Pindi Club Ground.

Test match

The Pindi Club Ground has hosted only one Test match, that being against New Zealand in March 1965, which Pakistan won convincingly by a margin of one inning and 64 runs. Interestingly, although Pakistan scored 318 runs in their only innings, there was not a single century scored. There was also no five-wicket haul, although left-arm spinner Pervez Sajjad took four wickets in each innings. Ehsan Mani, former ICC Chairman, and Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman, was one of the scorers in that match.

One Day Internationals

The ground has hosted two ODIs, against the West Indies and England in 1985 and 1987 respectively. The last match was played as part of the 1987 Cricket World Cup and was completed on the reserve day after rain halted play on the original date. The Pakistani team won both matches. The highest ODI score by any batsman on this turf is Sir Richie Richardson’s unbeaten 92.

Pindi Club Ground pitch report

The Pindi Club Ground is known to be a good batting track, with a balanced bounce and carry for the fast bowlers. The pitch usually tends to slow down a bit as the match progresses, making it difficult for the batsmen to score runs quickly. In general, it’s expected to be a good venue for cricket and the conditions are favorable for both batsmen and bowlers.
