The Sheshrao Krushnarao Wankhede Stadium is one of the biggest and one of the most renowned cricket stadiums in the country, which is possessed by the Mumbai Cricket Association. This unique stadium can accommodate around 45,000 people all at one time.
Mumbai, widely seen as India's cricket capital, is home to the Wankhede Stadium, one of the most iconic grounds in the nation. A difference of opinion between the Cricket Club of India and BCA led to the building of this stadium. Mumbai Indians play their home matches at the Wankhede Stadium in the IPL.
How does the pitch play?
The wicket at the Wankhede offers help for both the pacers and spinners. Close proximity to the Arabian Sea helps the swing bowlers considerably, particularly during the early hours of the daytime. However, spinners have been recognized to benefit during the last twosome of days of a Test match as the pitch turns into a vicious turner. Although the new ball does a bit in limited-over's cricket, the pitch tends to facilitate out and favor batsmen as the inning progresses. The venue offers great amusement when it comes to T20 cricket.
The Wankhede Stadium has gone down in history as one of the most important stadiums, which hosted some of the greatest cricket matches and reread some of the greatest talent the world has ever witnessed.
Mumbai Central Railway Station just 15 KM from Wankhede Stadium is very helpful while traveling.
