The Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad is set to become world’s largest cricket stadium. It will be unveiled on February 24. India cricketer Rohit Sharma expressed his joy and stated that he can’t wait to play at the ground.
India’s white-ball deputy said that he heard so much about the stadium and that he can’t wait to be a part of the proceedings. The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) shared the bird’s eye view of the stadium on social media. Motera will have a seating capacity of massive 110,000 spectators.
The stadium was made in the year 1982 with a seating capacity of 49,000 in the beginning. It will now beat Australia’s Melbourne Cricket Ground from the top spot. India’s Eden Gardens will also be dislodged from the top spot as Motera is set to achieve a fine feat.
