Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium profile

The Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium became Pakistan’s 14th Test ground in 1993. It is located on the outskirts of Rawalpindi and is a mere three miles away from Islamabad. It is effectively the home ground of Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League. Like other cricket venues around the country, it was the subject of a proposed makeover by the Pakistan Cricket Board in 2018. It had gone 15 years without international cricket between 2004 and 2019, but is now fully back in rotation.

What to look for when betting on matches in Rawalpindi

One in ever two Tests at this ground have been won by an innings. In ODI cricket, more often than not the team batting second wins. This is a good ground for chasing totals in limited-overs competition, but in the longest format batting first has historically been the right decision. Teams who bat first at this ground in the PSL are generally favoured to win among tournament betting tips.
