    In Pakistan,

    Multan - Sellout for ODI. Around 25000-30000 people. 10000/15000 people for a five-day test, even against India. FC games - FC Final, around 800-1000 I think. Regluar games - none except maybe the family members of the players.

    Lahore - Day-nighters are hotly contested sell-outs. Near full for other ODI games. [Hardly any in recent years] 10000 for a five-day test. FC finals, around a thousand or so gather around (more if a famous player is playing and the weather is favourable). Regular games - same as Multan.

    Karachi - Sellout ODI's with 35000 plus. [Except against Bangladesh/Zimbabwe] 3000-5000 people for a test match. [from a population of over 10 million, more people then 2 NZ's put-togather, IIRC] Can't really say anything about FC matches, but they'd hardly top 500.

    Faisalabad - ODI would probably be a sellout. Nearly 20000 people. About 30000 I'd say for the last test played there which I remember. [Back on the English tour in 2000]

    Rawalpindi - ODI's are usually sellouts. Around 20000-25000 people present counting in the adjacent roof hangers and convinent tree-tops. Test matches are more sparsely populated. I'd say 20000 people maximum. I believe the same would also apply to Peshawar.


    [Disclaimer - Most of the figures are rought estimates either recalled from memory or based on ancedotal evidence]

    ODI - 20,000+ (apparently the 35,000 seats for tomorrow are pretty much sold out)
    1000-2000 for a One Day match...I'm sure the Outer Oval staff would be pleased with that. But 50 for a First Class match is, although appalling, very true.

    They say that, but even when they oversold all those tickets for the twenty20 in which people were so squashed in they had kids sitting just inside the ropes, it was only just over 20,000. I dont know where you'd fit in another 5,000 people!

    The Brit Oval is currently undergoing a redevelopment at the Vauxhall end worth 25 million that will see the capacity rise from 19,000 to approximately 23,000. The new stand has been named the OCS Stand as part of a 750,000 sponsorship deal. The start of the project was the 2nd February 2004 and is currently on track for completion on 31st May 2005.
