The Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium can be found in Abu Dhabi, UAE; named in honor of the president’s name, His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. It cost approximately 23 million dollars to construct and opened in May 2004. The Emirates Cricket Board owns the item.
This stadium has served as an adopted home ground for numerous nations, including Pakistan and Afghanistan. In the past ten years, Pakistan has played the majority of cricket in UAE, with many matches being played on this field. Interestingly, friendly football games have also been played at this cricket stadium.
At each end of the stadium is a large stand with a VIP box for players. In addition, there is additional seating on grass, which in the scorching heat doesn’t feel particularly exciting, but it doesn’t stop people from enjoying the game. Up to 20,000 people can sit in this stadium.
This pitch is the same as any other stadium in the UAE, just like every other ground there. The deck has low bounce and a slow pace due to the pitch’s lack of grass in dry and humid weather. Spinners will receive assistance from the pitch on the second or third day of a test match after patches have formed.
Matches played in shorter formats tend to be high-scoring affairs because of the small boundary on the square of the wicket.
The weather at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is expected to reach a maximum temperature of 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) on Thu. 12. On Wednesday, the minimum temperature will be 65°F/19°C. On Wednesday, the windiest day is expected to be 35 kph or 22 mph.
