The National Stadium cricket stadium in Karachi, Pakistan, owned by the Pakistan Cricket Board. It is the home ground of Karachi Kings, and is home to many other Karachi's domestic cricket teams. The stadium is able to hold 34,228 spectators. After renovations to Gaddafi Stadium reduced its capacity to 27,000, National Stadium became the second highest capacity cricket ground in Pakistan.
The Pakistani cricket team have a remarkable Test record at the ground, having only lost twice in 40 Test matches. The stadium has witnessed several memorable moments, such as Viv Richards 181 against Sri Lanka at the 1987 Cricket World Cup, Mohammad Yousuf's record ninth century of the year to break Viv Richards' record of most runs in a calendar year, and Kamran Akmal's famous century against India on a very difficult pitch in 2006, after Pakistan had collapsed to 39 for 6, as part of a memorable come-from-behind victory.
