New International Stadium to Come Up in Haryana

The Haryana Cricket Association (HCA) has proposed an international stadium. It will come up in Jhajjar district near the state border with Delhi.

This is being done in a bid to increase international cricket in the state as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) requires state associations to have their own stadiums or at least lease them for long periods to be eligible to host international matches. The last time Haryana hosted an international cricket match was in 2007 when India took on Australia in an ODI at Sector-16 in Chandigarh.


Anirudh Chaudhary, President of the HCA said-


We have already acquired the land near the Badsa village in the Jhajjar district and all the formalities will be completed in the next few months.


He also added that members of the HCA had visited some stadiums in England as they want this new stadium to be of international standards. The stadium will have a capacity of 25,000 to 30,000 and would be completed in 3 years’ time.


Interestingly, DDCA (Delhi District Cricket Association) has also planned another stadium on the outskirts of Delhi near Dwarka.
