Ahmedabad will soon get the world's largest cricket stadium leaving the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) far behind. Gujarat Cricket Association Vice-President Parimal Nathwani posted images of the under-construction stadium and hailed it as a symbol of national pride.

The Sardar Patel Stadium in Montera, Ahmedabad is being renovated to accommodate over 1 lakh spectators from the existing 49,000.

The stadium commonly referred to as the Montera Stadium, is being redeveloped across 63 acres under architect firm M/s Populous.

According to a report in The Indian Express, the estimated cost of the project is Rs 700 crore and the construction tender has been given to Larsen & Toubro.

The edifice will boast three practice grounds, an indoor cricket academy and 76 corporate boxes. The parking lot at the stadium would accommodate 3,000 cars and 10,000 two-wheelers.

"There will be a concourse to connect the entire stadium for pedestrian and vehicular movement. Moreover, the clubhouse will be equipped with 55 rooms and an Olympic size swimming pool," Nathwani was quoted in a report by The Hindu.
