But he also said that Wasim Khan, the president of the cricket board himself visited the ground and showed optimism for it.
Alam was grateful that PCB allowed for the match to happen between the two teams and also the owners of the two franchises who have theri nod and were more than willing for the match at Gwadar stadium. The stadium came into video of the public because of its striking beauty towards the end of last year.

On February 19 the stadium witnessed its first ever match between Gwadar Dolphins and Showbiz Sharks. The exhibition match was played with an aim to give tribute to late mountaineer Ali Sadpara. Concluding his announcement, Alam also said that he has enormous confidence in the chief minister of Balochistan Jam Kamal and is sure that he will be able to arrange for a proper match in the stadium.
