It also caught the attention of the South African leggie, Tabrez Shamsi, who is part of its Test and T20I squad touring Pakistan.
The bowler liked the venue so much that he even requested the authorities to move the final T20I from Lahore to Gwadar. He included it in the three of his favorite venues for cricket. The other two are Newlands in South Africa and Dharamsala in India.
