Gwadar Cricket Stadium, being dubbed as the "world's most beautiful cricket stadium" by the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development (HRD), held an exhibition match on Friday.
The match was held between Gwadar Dolphins, captained by PM's aide Zulfiqar Bukhari, and Showbiz Sharks, which is being led by Pakistan Cricket Board's Chief Executive Wasim Khan. The Gwadar Dolphins won the toss and chose to bowl. British High Commissioner Christian Turner officiated the toss.
Stars including Fakhr-i-Alam, Ali Zafar and Aijaaz Aslam also participated in the match.
The match was dedicated to mountaineer Mohammad Ali Sadpara, who was recently declared dead more than a week after he went missing on K2 during an expedition. The players also said a prayer for the celebrated mountaineer before the match.
Throughout the match, the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and HRD' Twitter account posted pictures of the scenic stadium with the hashtag #CricketAtGwadar.
The stadium also earned high praise from the International Cricket Council a few weeks back when the body shared photos of the sports venue.
"Show us a more picturesque sports venue than the Gwadar cricket stadium in Balochistan. We'll wait..." the tweet said.
