Game Time: The story behind the world’s biggest cricket stadium in Motera

The February 24-28 day-night India-England Test is scheduled to take place at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad – the world’s biggest cricket stadium. The stadium has the capacity of 1,10,000, and its complex has two practice grounds with nine pitches, and another 11 on the central square. But this impressive stadium also has an intriguing political history which spawned its birth. In this episode, Gaurav Bhatt and Mihir Vasavda are joined by Indian Express’s chief cricket writer Sriram Veera to talk about this history, the upcoming test match and why the stadium’s pitch has garnered criticism.
