The state of the art Sheikh Zayed Stadium is probably one of the best cricket grounds. It was started out in May 2004 and held its first first-class match when Scotland played Kenya  in the Intercontinental Cup that November.

With a capacity of 20,000 it has organized a variety  of international and domestic games, while it's vicinity to the town - just 30 minutes drive from the Abu Dhabi Island City - makes it a perfect location for sports, concerts and corporate activities.

The ground is covered with two huge stands at either end, with the areas square  of the wicket providing large grass banking for audiences to sit, although during the daytime that might be less than attractive as there is no shade. There is no pavilion as such, with the large changing rooms under one of the stands, and teams observe from inside air-conditioned glass areas.

One of the more memorable events at the stadium where the two continuous charity match between cricketing challengers Pakistan and India in April 2006. The two teams put aside their variations in support for the 2005 Pakistan upheaval victims.

The ground is dominated by two large stands at either end, with the areas square of the wicket offering large grass banking for spectators to sit, although during the daylight hours that might be less than appealing as there is no shade. There is no pavilion as such, with the large changing rooms under one of the stands, and teams watch from inside air-conditioned glass rooms.

Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Abu Dhabi. The stadium has been built at a cost of $2.5 million. It can accommodate 20000 people and has well-equipped facilities.

The stadium has floodlights facilities and is a newer venue in Sharjah. Indian and Pakistan played a 'Friendship Series' in April, 2006. The series was expected to raise $10 million for the earthquake relief out if which 75 per cent will go to Pakistan and the rest to India.

The stadium was opened in May 2004 and staged its first first-class match when Scotland played Kenya in the Intercontinental Cup that November.
