SAURASTRA CRICKET ASSOCIATION STADIUM (RAJKOT)

A land of 30 acres was sanctioned in 2004 near the Jamnagar highway to build this state-of-the-art cricket stadium. The construction began in 2006 and almost 75 crores was spent. The media box at the venue resembles the one at Lord's and also for the spectators to move freely, there are several aisles between the seats. It also caters as a sporting complex to various other sports like badminton, volleyball and basketball.

There are also two grounds for cricket. One is the main ground which started hosting first-class matches in 2009 and is 90 metres. The other, which is right beside, is 70 metres long and is mainly used for district games. The stadium plays hosts for Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) along with the Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground.

The venue holds together more than 60 hospitality boxes, but the SCA are against selling the tickets to corporates and only give them during an international game.
