The reconstructed Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera has a seating capacity of 1,10,000 and has surpassed the Melbourne Cricket Ground by 10,000.

The stadium will get inaugurated on February 24th, with BCCI president Sourav Ganguly already announcing a day-night Test between India and England at the venue in 2021.

32-year-old Rohit retweeted the post by BCCI's official Twitter handle and wrote,

" Looks amazing heard so much about it, can't wait to play there @BCCI."

Pandya, who's eyeing to return to the Indian cricket team following his back surgery in England in September, was impressed to see the picturesque view of the Motera Stadium.


Pandya branded the newly-constructed stadium 'unreal' while retweeting BCCI's original tweet.

Earlier, the biggest cricket stadium in India was Kolkata's Eden Gardens with a seating-capacity of 68,000 spectators. However, the tag will now get shifted to the Motera Stadium, where the revamped stadium will have an indoor training area, two cricket grounds, with facilities for swimming, hockey, and football.

Praising the amenities of the reconstructed stadium, Shastri depicted that the stadium looked spectacular as it is a matter of contentment for every Indian cricket fan. Shastri tweeted,

"Looks simply spectacular. A moment to cherish for every Indian cricket lover. World-class facility seating 1,10,000 #MoteraStadium."

Earlier, reports suggested that US President Donald Trump was slated to inaugurate the stadium on February 24th. However, it has been stated that it will be an Indian (undecided) to inaugurate the world's biggest cricket venue.
