India’s wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant also received a lot of praise after watching the World Class facility at Motera Stadium. Indian cricketers who traveled around the world were stunned by the world’s largest cricket stadium in Motera and it took them an hour to understand the facilities here. The dressing rooms of the stadium are connected to the gym. The first international match at Motera Stadium with a capacity of one lakh ten thousand spectators will be a day-night test between India and England starting on February 24.
