Dubai Sports City will light up tonight with the first Twenty20 match to be played in town
We're counting down already. The Twenty20 bug will hit Dubai tonight when the Dubai Sports City's new cricket stadium stages the first-ever international Twenty20 match in the UAE as Pakistan take on Australia in the one-off match of the Chapal Cup series.
"The stadium will become a cauldron of noise and we hope the match will entertain the crowd," U. Balasubramaniam, CEO of Dubai Sports City, said.
The 25,000-capacity stadium is expected to be full.
