Southend Club Cricket Stadium (previously known as the Defence Cricket Stadium) is a cricket ground in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan.

It has hosted only one Test match, the 1st Test [1]between Pakistan and Zimbabwe, from 1 December to 6 December 1993. Pakistan won by 131 runs, mainly due to Waqar Younis taking 7–91 in the first innings and 6–44 in the second. This was his first match as captain of Pakistan, standing in for Wasim Akram. Younis became Pakistan's youngest Test captain. It remains an approved venue for Test cricket.[2]

The stadium has hosted 17 other first-class cricket matches from 1990 to 2000,[3][4] and 16 List A limited overs matches from 1990 to 1999.[5][6]
