Delhi set for a new cricket stadium

  (1,123 views)

The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India has proposed an international stadium in New Delhi for the 2011 Cricket World Cup that will be hosted jointly by India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The new stadium, to be built on a 30-acre land allotted to the BCCI by the Delhi Development Authority at Maharani Bagh near Noida Bridge, would be owned by the BCCI.

ICC regulations requires that the stadium should be clean to hold World Cup matches, whereas Ferozshah Kotla, owned by the Delhi District Cricket Association, has corporate insignia all around the ground.

“Probably we will have a new stadium by 2011, owned by the Board,” Pawar said. It will be of international standards having an indoor academy, a club house and residential arrangements among other facilities,” Pawar said.

Whenever complete, it would probably be the first stadium owned by the BCCI.

The plan, however, has been there for at least four years now. “The land was allotted when Arun Jaitley was a Union Minister in the BJP government,” the BCCI chief said.

On April 30 the International Cricket Council had announced that the 2011 tournament would be held in Asia.

The 2015 edition will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand while the 2019 tournament would be held in England.
