The world’s largest cricket stadium has been under construction in Gujarat’s Ahmedabad for quite some time now and is now on the verge of completion. A report in The Indian Express claims that the stadium will be ready by early next year and the BCCI is planning a grand inauguration.

The report suggests that the stadium, which can accommodate 1.10 lakh spectators, could host an exhibition match between Asia XI and World XI in March next year if the International Cricket Council agrees to BCCI’s request.

 

"There will be Asia XI vs World XI game but it will be subject to ICC’s approval,” BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was quoted as saying in the report.

Please make it (India, not Asia BS) a 5 day match, please please :pray:

If people aren't there to fill the stadium distribute tickets for free to state units of political parties, @velu maybe the Dravidian parties can help, what's the current rate in the market? 1 mutton biryani packet for 3 hours? Guj is dry state so out of question. You posted a video I remember.

Lekin asia xi men player kya loge - i doubt even one player of pak can fit in asia xi for t20.

Even from SL, afghanistan- kusaal perara, malinga, rashid , nabi max.

Bang- shakib ban hai

T20 mein Mushfiqur, Malinga, Rashid pakka. Other options might be Fizz, Nabi, Mujeeb, Angelo. Don't think Bakis will be invited to play in Gujarat. 

 

Our T20 team is very weak, too many vacancies.

Damn that's too much, how long will they stay for that rate? Any other facilities they will provide?

 

Since Guj is heavily vegetarian, will veg biryani/pulao do?

If gujjus can relax rules a bit some dmk or admka vatta cheyalalar or ezhingar ani thalaivar can bring in couple of lakh people easy peasy.

just checked population of indian metros

 

bangalore = 1 crore

chennai = 90 lakh

kolkatta = 1.5 crore

mumbai = 1.8 crore

delhi = 1.6 crore 

 

ahemedabad = 60L 

coimbatore = 20L

erode = 5L

bhavani = 40k

Kolkata and chennai dont have that much in city limits. And metro limits is more than that. Something is wrong there.

 

Chennai metro was 1.4 crore in 2011 census.

Hope the pitch and stadium facilities are world class. Old Motera was a third class stadium, it’s new avatar deserves to be a world class sports facility.
 

Ahmedabad / Gandhinagar have too much of sarkari touch in building architecture and facilities starting from its pathetic ‘international’ airport. Statue of Unity at Narmada or Ranotsav at Rann of Kutch suffer from the same sarkari malaise. Likewise the holy cities at Dwarka and Somnath.

I think this stadium will host the 2023 WC final, the Gujju duo would want to put up a spectacle before 2024 election and Guj happens to be the nerve centre of BJP. 

script?  :nervous:

 

Jokes apart, everything else very likely.

Will depend on the results of Gujarat assembly polls in December 2022. 2017 was close, 2022 could very well see a major upset and end of a 27 year old BJP rein

The final won't be in Ahmedabad. Just don't have the atmosphere for such a event. Either Eden or Wankhede.

There is a high chance of Dhoni leading and retiring.

Yeah, sure. Packees are getting an invite to India.

Won't be surprised if Pakistani players get invited but even if that happens, they are going to reject it as this match is going to be part of a 3 match series as part of Sheikh Mujeeb's anniversary. The original proposal is already put in motion by Bangladesh, BCCI has come to the party now and putting up a third match to make it a series.

do they have liquor stores in gujarat?

In Ahmedabad there are about 4 hotels with attached rooms selling alcohol . You need a permit that means paperwork , paperwork and more paperwork , this must be applied for within 3 days of entering Ahmedabad and a boarding pass ( not a passport stamped by immigration ) must be shown . One visit every 3 weeks is allowed . I only go through this every time is to get liquor for my Indian friends in Ahmedabad . 

Many from Ahmedabad travel across the border to Mount Abu in Rajistan  for alcohol .

You can get one unit of alcohol once a week, if u are an NRI tourist or atleast that's what I got when I visited Ahmedabad early this year. Also there are more than 10 hotels selling permit liquors these days, though be ready to pay hefty prices for your favorite brands.
