Pakistan has played the most number of games at Sharjah. The famous ground in the UAE has the record of holding the most number of ODI games in the history of the game of cricket. Pakistan has always been one of the strongest teams on this ground. They have won record matches here. The reason is that Pakistan always felt like playing home in Sharjah. There is a huge crowd present here which supports Pakistan. A lot of Pakistanis are settled in the UAE and hence every time Pakistan travels to play cricket in the UAE these fans will be seen showing up in the stadiums to support the Pakistan team. This is one of the main reasons Pakistan always liked playing in the UAE especially at Sharjah. Then there is the pitch which suits the batters most of the time and also under the lights the ball starts reversing here. The reverse swing we all know is a weapon of mass destruction for the Pakistani bowlers.

Sharjah remains one of the most interesting yet controversial venues of cricket and because of the match and spot fixing issues we don’t see much cricket on this ground now. As per some of the cricket experts Sharjah is the ground where match fixing was given birth. But apart from all this Sharjah remains one of the most celebrated grounds in the world of cricket. Pakistani team has so many fond memories of this place. This one here is one of these best wins for Pakistan and there are two main reasons for it. The first one is that this was a final game of the tournament and it was against India the arch rivals and second the game was played at Sharjah. Wasim Akram and his men were in a superhot form with both bat and ball in that era and hence there was no chance for the Indians to stand against them.

Pakistan and India played a lot of games against each other on this very ground and most of the time Pakistan won. Some thrilling games of cricket were played here and one of them is highlighted here. Pakistan played India in the final of Sharjah cup back in 1999. Pakistan bowled first in the match and there was Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar who bowled some really destructive initial overs. Then after them came Azhar Mehmood and Saqlain Mushtaq. These two took wickets and India was all out for a low score. In the chasing Pakistan did not panic and made sure that they win this final. The batting did well again for Pakistan after an impressive bowling performance. Pakistan became the champions that night.
