7 'multi-sport' cricket grounds across the world
Over the years, international cricket has been played at numerous venues in different corners of the world. While some of them ceased to host cricket matches at a certain point, there are others which have been hosting games for the past several decades.
There are also many new cricket grounds which have come up and are giving the established ones a run for their money. Among the several cricket stadiums that exist in the prominent nations that play the sport, there are a few which also serve as venues for other sports.
Here are 7 such ‘multi-sport’ cricket grounds around the world:
#7 DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai (India)
The DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai is one of the newer cricket stadiums in India and was established back in the year 2008. Although it is yet to host any international matches so far, it has been one of the regular venues in the Indian Premier League and was initially the home ground for two-time champions Mumbai Indians.
However, of late, the stadium has also gained the status of being a football ground ever since the Indian Super League began in 2014. The DY Patil Stadium was home to Mumbai City FC in the first two seasons of the league and also hosted the final of the inaugural edition between Kerala Blasters and Atletico de Kolkata.
The stadium was recently named as one of the venues for the FIFA U-17 World Cup to be played in India next year.
