The Motera Stadium in Gujarat will soon become the world's largest cricket stadium. After its renovation, it will have a seating capacity of 1,10,000 people. According to the Gujarat cricket officials, the new Motera stadium is a dream project by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This stadium last hosted an international match between India and Sri Lanka in 2014. It also hosted the famous 2011 World Cup quarterfinal clash between India and Australia.
BCCI's official Twitter handle shared a bird’s eye view of the stadium and the picture is being liked by all the fans. The stadium was going to host a T20I between Asia XI and World XI in March. However, the fixture was cancelled later. It was reported that this happened due to certain delays in construction.
