Motera becomes the world's largest cricket stadium.

The Motera stadium, the biggest cricket stadium in the world, was inaugurated by President Ram Nath Kovind, and was renamed the Narendra Modi Stadium.

Players from India and England have been admiring the refurbished Motera - the world's largest cricket stadium.

The teams are playing the third Test match in the ongoing series at the stadium in Ahmedabad, the biggest city in India's western state of Gujarat. Both teams have won a Test each in the four-match series.

Players from both teams trained at the newly-built stadium, which can seat 110,000 spectators. But only 55,000 fans will be allowed in the two Tests to be played at the venue due to pandemic restrictions.

The stadium was first opened in the early 1980s but has recently been rebuilt and now has a seating capacity of 110,000.

Motera currently is the biggest cricket stadium in the world in terms of capacity. The last time when India played a cricket match at Motera was way back in 2014.

This day-night pink ball Test, which started on Wednesday 24 Feb 2021, is the first international match hosted at the stadium since November 2015 when it was demolished for reconstruction work.
