This is the stadium where the Sri Lanka cricket team was heading towards when their bus was ambushed and attacked by gunmen in 2009, killing 6
policemen and a driver, and injuring a number of the Sri Lankan players.
Since then, all international cricket matches in Pakistan have been postponed indefinitely, as they can not guarantee the safety of visiting teams.
Whether they rename it or not may be a rather moot point, because it may not host anything of any international note for many years to come.
Also, they may not want to rename it, considering they've kept this name throughout many previous years of Gaddafi craziness.
