Gujarat’s Motera stadium renamed after PM Narendra Modi

Ahead of the start of the pink-ball Test between India and England, Sardar Patel Stadium, the world’s biggest cricket stadium was renamed as Narendra Modi Stadium.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday inaugurated the Narendra Modi Stadium, which is now the world’s largest cricket stadium with a seating capacity of 1,32,000 fans.

 

Spread over 63 acres, the stadium, which was known at the Motera Stadium, has 11 pitches in the square, besides possessing a unique sub-soil drainage system that helps in draining the wet ground in 30 minutes.
