Australian Cricket In Multan
Multan is Pakistan's prime cricket centre with a beautiful stadium in southern Punjab, 10km from the city. Not close to Lahore, or Karachi, or indeed anywhere, Multan isn't a tourist hotspot, transport hub, or anything. Hard to know its purpose if not cricket.
It is renowned however for its shrines and ornate tile works and those alone give reason to visit. Pending on where you've been before, you might be shrined out by the time you visit here so any cricket in Multan means you should save your shrining.
There are nice sights of Multan nestled around the hill that is home to Qasim Bagh Fort and the old cricket stadium, the last venue an Australia Cricket Team played in Multan in 1982. The best views of any city in Pakistan can be found 'up at the fort' where a platform allows for great photos. The old city winds its way around the base of the hill in a labyrinth of quiet lanes and small bazaars stuffed behind the ageing gates of the fort.
If you want to see a sight other than Tomb Shah Shams Sabzwari Tabrez, Tomb Shah Ali Akbar, and Tomb of Shah Yusef Gardezi (to name three), then the stunning Ghanta Ghar (Municipal Corporation Office) is it. Multan is laid back and gives respite from more bustling Pakistan cities.
Should we play Cricket in Multan, we will transfer you to the hotel on arrival. Travelling 'domestically' to Multan is best done by train or long-distance bus. There's only one flight from Islamabad and three flights from Karachi per week though you can fly into Multan on several Middle East airlines.
Otherwise, depending on when we play cricket in Multan, train travel to/from Multan in a private saloon carriage is included along with transfers to and from the cricket stadium each day. All will be confirmed when then cricket schedule is.
