  • A perfect place for all Cricket Lovers. World class facilities with amazing view from all corners. A Perfect Stadium with Built In Class Facilities. A must visit for all cricket loving enthusiasts.
  • A very decent stadium. If you are going to go I recommend it as a very spaced and big stadium. The seats aren't that bad but can be improved. If you are going to go there I recommend taking a decent amount of cash because the rates there for food and snacks are a bit high other than that it's a perfect open aired stadium
