Qatar could be ready to host international cricket matches following the launch of a brand new cricket stadium, it was announced on Sunday.
The stadium, located in the Industrial Area of Doha, was inspected by Bandula Warnapura, the Asian Cricket Council development manager, who said that the stadium looks ready to host One Day International matches, a report in local English newspaper, The Peninsula said.
“The stadium looks good to host an ODI,” Warnapura, a former Test player, said.
“It is fantastic, I must say…one of the best I’ve seen in this region,” the former Sri Lankan Test captain said.
