The Test series between India and England is nicely poised with a win each to the two teams. The third and the fourth Test match is scheduled to take place at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad. It has the capacity to seat 110,000 fans. Hence even if the BCCI decides to allow a 50% capacity crowd, it means 55,000 fans will be thronging the stadium.
This kind of capacity is larger than many of the full stadiums in the world. The sweeping landscape, the design adds to the beauty of the stadium.
England cricketers can’t get enough of the Motera Stadium:
There will be an electric . English all-rounder took to Twitter to express his awe and shock at playing in such a beautiful stadium. Stokes retweeted a post shared by the official handle of English cricket. The post stated, “Some stadium this is…. And a bit of local music to help get through to the end.” Ben Stokes will surely be itching to put on a show at the grand Motera.
