  • India is soon going to add one more cricket stadium in the list of 52 international cricket venues it has with the construction of Motera cricket stadium set to be the world’s largest cricket ground in Gujarat.
  • M/S Populous, the firm that designed Melbourne Cricket ground, is working on Motera Cricket Stadium.
  • The stadium has the capacity to fit in 110,000 people at one point of time, way more than the Melbourne stadium which has capacity to fit in nearly 100,024 fans.
Cricket-crazy Indians have much to cheer about. The country, where cricket is nothing less than a religion, is building what is set to be the world's largest cricket stadium.

Located in Motera near Ahmedabad in Gujarat, and named Sardar Patel Gujarat Stadium, the stadium is expected to be ready in the next two years. It will be even larger than Australia's Melbourne Cricket Ground.
