Gate Number 3 of Motera Stadium crumbles: The supposed entry gate of the renovated stadium has crumbled in Ahmedabad.
There is no going into a safe house regarding the fact that the renovated Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad is all set to become the world’s largest cricket stadium.
Built for a whopping cost of INR 700 crore, the colossal stadium will comprise of three practice grounds, an indoor cricket academy, an Olympic-size swimming pool and a Clubhouse in addition to the playing area.
USA President Trump, who is slated to visit in India alongside First Lady Melania Trump and a 12-member delegation, will be attending an event at the Motera Stadium with India Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
While there were reports of Trump inaugurating the stadium tomorrow in the recent past, there is no confirmation regarding any inaugurating ceremony till now.
In December 2019, BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) President Sourav Ganguly had hinted at conducting an Asia XI vs World XI contest to inaugurate the stadium. While the same still remains unconfirmed, Ganguly recently announced that the Motera stadium will host England for a day-night Test match in 2021.

A video of the Gate No. 3 of the Motera Stadium crumbling due to heavy wind a day before Trump’s visit is doing the rounds on social media platform Twitter. It is further reported that the Gate No. 3 is expected to be the entry point for Trump.
That being said, given the extent to which preparations are being made to welcome the US President, one expects the collapsed gate to be put back in its right place.
