Australian curator visits Naya Nazimabad Stadium for pitches inspection

KARACHI: Australia’s expert pitch curator Damien Hough inspected the Naya Nazimabad Stadium outfield and square today and interacted with the curator and ground staff.

Details indicate that Hough paid a visit to Naya Nazimabad Stadium today following his Friday visit to the National Stadium, and inspected the pitch and the square.

Hough, the chief curator of Adelaide Oval, met with the groundskeepers and curators at the Naya Nazimabad cricket ground and offered advice on how to improvise the pitch preparation.

The PCB-appointed pitches expert had earlier visited Gaddafi Stadium Lahore and  Rawalpindi Stadium as part of his tour of Pakistan.

It is worth mentioning here that Hough is currently on a two-week trip to Pakistan to inspect local pitches and outfields besides giving consultancy to local curators on pitch-making techniques.
