If football is the game of choice for most Saudis, then cricket is the favourite for most visitors from the sub-continent.

Drive round Riyadh any Friday morning and you will see impromptu matches being played in many areas – most notably in the large car parking area next to the stadium in Malaz.

There have been rumours circulating Riyadh for many years of plans in the pipeline for the creation of a cricket stadium specifically to cater for the needs of the Indians and Pakistanis in particular.
