good gradual slope of seating. But do you know what are the proposals for sunshading. It's going to be hot up there.

what if the BFF take away the mirpur stadium once all the electronic score boards and flood lights are set, and the capacity is extended to 65000?

I'm not sure about the details of the improvement scheme they have taken up.. but probably they will hav steel-framed shading canopies over part of the seating area.

I've heard they got a handsome budget for the total upgradation work.. and importance will be given on making the stadium visually impressive also.

Why do we need a lords BTW ... we need just a good stadium for playing cricket don't care whether it i s lords or not. They should do something unique not just following ..... he is the one who wanted coaches from Paki so that our boys can understand them well and we were end up witl Mohsin Kamal and Ali Zia.
