The Narendra Modi Stadium which hosted the IPL 2022 final is now etched into the Guinness Book of World Records. The stadium recorded a number of people 1,01,566 for the final between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals. Gujarat Titans won the championship in their maiden season.
Narendra Modi Stadium is the biggest stadium in World Cricket. The league stage of Tata IPL 2022 was played in Mumbai & Pune as a precaution against Covid-19. The change in venue did miracles for BCCI as the viewers got to see a jam-packed crowd that lit up the atmosphere.
Jay Shah On Feat
BCCI Secretary Jay Shah took to his Twitter handle and announced the remarkable feat. “Extremely delighted & proud to receive the Guinness World Record for the largest attendance at a T20 match when 101,566 people witnessed the epic @IPL final at @GCAMotera’s magnificent Narendra Modi Stadium on 29 May 2022. A big thanks to our fans for making this possible! @BCCI,” said Jay Shah.

Great IPL 2022 season
The addition of 2 new teams to the season did wonders for BCCI and for the IPL. LSG & GT changed the face of IPL as these two teams dethroned MI & CSK. Gujarat Titans’ skipper Hardik Pandya was bang on with his selection and tactics and it never looked as if he was captaining for the first time.
The flamboyant all-rounder had a terrific season as he scored 487 runs in 15 matches. He was quite fearless in his approach and stood behind the bowler.
The upcoming Season 2023 is expected to have home and away fixtures for the teams which means that the fans can experience scintillating action as there would be even contested with both bat and ball.
There is also a chance that Legendary Captain MS Dhoni may bid adieu to IPL as he had mentioned that he would like to play in front of his home ground. The captain would be eager to sign off in a grand fashion after a disastrous 2022 season for CSK where they failed to make any significant impact.
