As the England side struggled in the training area on Tuesday afternoon, the action was even more eventful in the main stadium. With the world’s largest cricket hall set to host its first international match, the Sardar Patel Stadium wore a festive look.
BCCI Secretary Jay Shah was overseeing last-minute preparations at the 110,000-seat stadium that will host President Ram Nath Kovind on day one of the pink ball test.
The state-of-the-art stadium has 11 locations and will be lit by a ring of fire, an arrangement of circular LED lights, instead of spotlight towers.
The highlight of the venue, however, is the provision of four locker rooms with equipment, including gymnasiums. This will likely come in handy when T20 double headers become the norm in cricket.
