There is no plan to change the name of Qaddafi Stadium said Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi while talking to the media in Lahore on Monday here.

He said, “When I first joined the PCB, some people urged me to change the name of Gaddafi Stadium and name it after Abdul Sattar Edhi. I tried to adhere to the same idea.” Replying to a question he said, “I believe that the historical names should remain the same, for our memories are connected with them.”

It merits mentioning here that Najam Sethi, in his previous term as PCB chairman, had proposed that the name of Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore be changed to Edhi Stadium in order to pay homage to the late philanthropist.
