Ahmedabad: President, Ram Nath Kovind at the inauguration of the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium and laid the foundation stone of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Sports Enclave in Ahmedabad has become the world’s largest cricket stadium with a capacity of 1.32 lakh.

The President said India is called the 'Power House of Cricket' or 'Hub of Cricket'. Therefore, it is quite appropriate that the world's largest cricket stadium is also now in our country. He appreciated the efforts put in building this stadium which was started under the guidance of the then Chief Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi and then efficiently followed up by Amit Shah as Chairman of Gujarat Cricket Association.

The President observed that many young cricketers, coming from small villages and cities of the Indian hinterland, are gradually emerging as significant sporting talents on the strength of their hard work. The youth also have the capability to perform well in other sports on international levels. For this to materialize, provided the world-class infrastructure. 

The development of sports facilities is significant, imperative that talented players in greater number take advantage of these facilities. Facility and access to facility both are necessary for the wholesome development of our sports talent. Many promising players, living in remote areas, do not get the opportunity to show their talent due to financial constraint or due to other obstacles. Efforts are being made to provide facilities to young players. Taking such efforts forward on a more comprehensive level would provide an opportunity to nurture the hidden sporting talents in our country.

The President said that the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi gave a lot of encouragement to sports in Gujarat during his tenure as Chief Minister. A new culture of sports is being developed by the Central Government throughout the country. Campaigns like 'Khelo-India' and 'Fit-India' are creating a trend towards encouraging good health and sports among the people. Efforts are being made to register India's impressive presence in the sporting world with programs like the 'Target Olympic Podium Scheme'. Extended his wishes to the Indian and English teams playing cricket at the newly inaugurated stadium.
