  • This is a compact cricket stadium where domestic and international matches are conducted. Excellent drainage system, solar powered lights. There are no much vendors inside the stadium but eat joints are available outside the stand but inside the venue. Ticket prices varies by season and match type. You hardly get any mobile signals inside the stadium. Rest assured, security is high and you can follow up whats going on and view the players and the match clearly.
