Explained: With 1,10,000 seats, Motera cricket stadium set to become largest in world

The Motera cricket stadium was built after the old Sardar Patel stadium, with a seating capacity of 53,000, was pulled down in 2015. It has taken four and a half years for Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the constructor, to build it. The foundation stone had been laid in January 2017.
