Ishant Sharma, playing the 100th Test, was given the guard of honor by the Indian players.
President Ramnath Kovind inaugurated the world’s largest newly constructed cricket stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad. The third day-night Test match between India and England is being played at the Cricket Stadium in Motera from today. The stadium is spread over 63 acres of land and has a seating capacity of 1 lakh 32 thousand.
Who built the stadium?
The stadium project was handed over to Larsen & Toubro (L & T) by the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA), while it will be designed by architecture firm M / s Populous. It is the same firm that designed Melbourne Stadium.

Picture of Narendra Modi Stadium. We usually see in the cricket stadium that the spectators always like to sit in the front line, because the match can be watched without any hindrance. At the same time, the specialty of Motera Stadium is that there is not a single pillar or any other bottleneck in the middle of the stadium. This means that the match can be enjoyed by sitting in any stand.
This photo is from 9 August 2010. After two days of heavy rain in the India-New Zealand match, the condition of Motera Stadium was somewhat like this. There will be no loss in the new stadium. Because here all the soil drainage system is designed in such a way that it will be dried in just 30 minutes. That is, the match will not be canceled even if it rains 8 cm.
The stadium has a seating capacity of 1 lakh 32 thousand people.
The Indian team that won the World Cup is also depicted inside the stadium.
Portraits of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have also been installed inside the studio.
It was a picture of that time it was becoming the largest stadium in the world.
