Recently India has started building the world’s biggest cricket stadium that will accommodate 110,000 spectators and cost around $100 million.
Since the capacity of Kolkata’s Eden Gardens was reduced as part of a major rebuilding project, Melbourne Cricket Ground now held the title of the sport’s largest stadium with seating for around 100,000.
But speaking at a ground-breaking ceremony in western Gujarat state, officials have said a new stadium in the city of Ahmedabad would be able to welcome 110,000 people.
Gujarat Cricket Association vice president Parimal Nathwani revealed that the overall cost of the project at seven billion rupees, saying the venue would house other facilities.
“The stadium will have 76 corporate boxes, four dressing rooms, a clubhouse and one Olympic-size swimming pool,” Nathwani was saying to the Press Trust of India news agency.
The complex, to be built over the next two years, will also have three practice grounds and an indoor cricket academy.
It is going to be built on the site of the recently demolished Sardar Patel Gujarat Stadium, which could hold around 50,000 spectators.
India, the world’s top-ranked Test team, already has more than a dozen stadiums capable of holding international cricket matches.

Gujarat’s state teamis also the current holders of the Ranji Trophy, India’s state championship.
