18 February 2011

The Wankhede Stadium is in the Indian city of Mumbai, and will be host to the 2011 Cricket World Cup.  The stadium was built after  a dispute between two other cricket grounds in India over ticket allocations. The stadium is named after a politician, SK Wankhede, who was the secretary of the Mumbai Cricket Association.

He instigated the build of the stadium, which was commissioned by the Mumbai Cricket Association. The building work was completed in 1975 just in time to host the final test between India and the West Indies. Since its erection, it has become the main cricket ground in Mumbai, taking over from Brabourne Stadium. The architect for the building of Wankhede Stadium was Shashi Prabhu.

The ICC approved Wankhede Stadium at the end of January as the host stadium after the Eden Gardens ground was ruled as inappropriate earlier. Wankhede Stadium has recently undergone extensive renovations in preparation for the 2011 World Cup.  The renovation has included a set of brand new seats, hard pitching, new toilets and better lighting.
