“Hyderabad more than Delhi, why?” – Twitter stunned to know the possible costs of major stadium renovations in India

While the IPL vibes are going on one side, the BCCI has been a bit busy planning a massive upgrade of five stadiums in India ahead of the ODI World Cup 2023. For the record, the mega event is slated to be held entirely in India for the first time.

The all-important event is scheduled to be held in the October-November slot. It remains to be seen how India will approach the tournament this time around.

India last won the ODI World Cup back in 2011 as they beat Sri Lanka to win their second World Cup. Post the IPL 2023, a lot of international assignments are set to take place, with the Ashes, Asia Cup and bilateral series lined up ahead of the ODI World Cup.

For the record, the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata, Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi are among those stadiums that will be revamped ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.

It is quite obvious that BCCI is the richest cricket body in the world. They made huge money over the last decade and they are using the wages wisely to revamp as many as five stadiums in India.

Meanwhile, the fans were taken aback upon knowing the possible costs of major stadium renovations. As per PTI, it would take INR 100 crore to revamp the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

Last but not least, it would take INR 78.82 crore to revamp the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. As many as 12 venues have been shortlisted to host World Cup fixtures.

It is said that the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad is the likely venue for the final. On the other hand, the likes of Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot and Mumbai are the other venues that will host the World Cup games.
