PM Narendra Modi, Tendulkar, Gavaskar To Lay The Foundation Stone Of A New International Cricket Stadium In Varanasi

In a move to ignite the spirit of cricket in Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to lay the foundation stone for a brand new international cricket stadium in his parliamentary constituency. This isn’t just a stadium; it’s a symbol of dreams and aspirations, where the ‘essence of Kashi’ will meet the passion for cricket.

The Uttar Pradesh government, led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, has spared no effort in making this vision a reality. They’ve invested a whopping Rs 121 crore in acquiring the land for the stadium. But the grandeur doesn’t stop there. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all in, committing a substantial Rs 330 crore for the stadium’s construction. This is more than just a stadium; it’s an investment in the future of Indian cricket.

What’s a cricketing event without the legends of the game? Cricket enthusiasts, get ready to witness greatness. Sachin Tendulkar, Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri, and more cricketing icons are expected to grace the ceremony. It’s a moment where the past, present, and future of Indian cricket converge.

But what truly sets this stadium apart is its design. It’s not just about bricks and mortar; it’s about capturing the soul of Varanasi. The stadium’s design will feature crescent-shaped roof covers, floodlights resembling a trident (the sacred weapon of Lord Shiva), patterns reminiscent of bel leaves (a symbol of worship), and even a structure shaped like a ‘damru’ (Lord Shiva’s musical instrument).

The stadium won’t just be a place to play cricket; it will be an arena of joy. Picture this: a spectator gallery resembling the iconic steps of the ghats in Varanasi. It’s where the spirit of the city meets the spirit of the game. When it’s complete, it will have a capacity for 30,000 spectators and boast seven pitches, ensuring thrilling matches for years.

Varanasi, get ready for a cricketing revolution! With this new international cricket stadium, the city is set to become a hub for the sport. After Kanpur and Lucknow, this will be Uttar Pradesh’s third international cricket stadium, marking a new era in the state’s cricketing journey.
