The Sardar Patel Stadium or Motera was first constructed in 1982 when the state government of Gujarat donated 50 acres of land for its construction.

The Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad will be the world’s largest cricket stadium with a maximum capacity of 110,000 fans, which will be more than twice its previous seating capacity. The authorities would expect that the fans would turn up in numbers to cheer for their respective teams.

The newly-constructed cricket stadium will steal the title from Australia’s Melbourne Cricket Ground as the world’s largest cricket stadium.Motera stadium has held one T20I match between India and Pakistan in the year 2012, which was also Pakistan’s final international match on Indian soil.
