The BCCI is constantly giving updates to cricket fans by sharing the picture of the new cricket stadium. Taking to his Twitter, Rohit Sharma expressed his utmost delight, terming the stadium to be 'amazing'.
Located in Ahmedabad, the Motera Stadium was made in 1982 with a seating capacity of 49,000 at the time of construction, which has now been increased. Motera will also beat Eden Gardens in Kolkata as India's largest cricket stadium, which has the seating capacity of 66,000 spectators.
