Just like any other sport in the world, in cricket as well, fans play arguably a very important role. They are the ones who rush to the stadia, to support their teams. In any sport, the players find their strength from the fans, they help teams to play better, and some crowds are intimidating as well, and cricket is no different.
Having said that, to accommodate these fans, the stadiums these days are getting bigger and better. Gone are the days when stadiums were used for just playing purposes, nowadays the venues are much more than just a sporting arena.
Cricket Stadiums are becoming modern with each passing day, and today, we have in store for you ten of the largest cricket stadiums in the world:
