President Ramnath Kovind will inaugurate the world’s largest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on Wednesday.
The world’s largest cricket stadium has now been named after Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Earlier it was named Sardar Patel Stadium. At the Sardar Patel Stadium, one lakh 10 thousand spectators can sit and watch the match.
Earlier, the world’s largest cricket stadium was in Australia. Melbourne can seat 90 thousand spectators.
The third match of the four-Test Test series will be played between India and England in Motera from Wednesday.
The Sardar Patel Stadium, spread over 63 acres, has four doors. It has several dressing rooms, indoor practice pitch, outdoor pitch as well as a dormitory where 40 athletes can stay.
The stadium has special arrangements for coaches, physiotherapists and trainers.
This stadium, built for about eight billion rupees, has also been built by the same company who made the 182-meter tall statue of Sardar Ballabhbhai Patel.
Since 2015, the construction of the Motera Stadium started afresh, which ended in the year 2020. Now this stadium has become the largest cricket stadium in the world. The stadium has a seating capacity of 1 lakh 10 thousand spectators, while Melbourne Cricket Stadium in Australia can seat 90 thousand spectators.
Matches will no longer be cancelled due to rain in Motera, as the sub-soil drainage system is built here in such a way that the ground will dry up in 30 minutes. After about 6 years an international match will be played in Motera. No international matches have been played here since 2014.
