Day 1 and 2 of Pakistan v England made for terrific viewing, as always between these two sides. Except……..the damn stadium in Dubai. Lord’s or Lahore would have been teeming with fans, there would have been cheers for boundaries and/or wickets, none of that in this desert. It’s just typical UAE – build huge globs of cement and call it the biggest and best in the world, only to see nobody use the facilities at the end of the day. Literally, there were a few scattered Barmy Army fans in the stands, but that’s it. You would think that the country has some Pakistani supporters as well, but they either don’t care, or don’t want to drive over to the ‘Dubai Sports World’, where the stadium’s at, to witness the encounter.
