After almost three years, a T20I match will be played at Pune’s Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium; interestingly, India and Sri Lanka only met in that match in 2020. A total of 13 matches were held here; it was one of the six locations for the IPL 2022 matches. In Pune, a black soil surface will be applied. Sharad Pawar, the former president of the BCCI and ICC, opened the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) stadium in Pune, Maharashtra, in 2012. In the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Pune Warriors India played their home games at MCA Stadium, also known as Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium, which was designed by Hopkins Architects of London. So let’s find out about Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium boundary length and seating capacity.
What is the Maharashtra Cricket Association Boundary length?
The square boundaries are approximately 65 metres while the straight and front square boundaries are approximately 74 metres. The square’s perimeter is 58 metres on each side. Therefore, it is evident that at this location, batters won’t have any trouble clearing the boundary while bowlers will find it more difficult to bowl.
Seating capacity of the MCA Stadium?
There are about 37,000 seats in this stadium, so the game might be completely sold out. This game has the potential to be very high scoring because of the size of the boundary and the calibre of the batters on both sides. The venue hosts boundary-pushing performances for the fans.
