India vs Australia Ahmedabad Test creates RECORD for biggest crowd at Narendra Modi Stadium

Highest Attendance in Cricket Match

The refurbished Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has a whopping capacity of 132,000 seats. It is easily the largest cricket stadium in the world, dwarfing the venerable Melbourne Cricket Ground, which holds numerous cricket crowd records.

The fourth Test between India and Australia, played at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, made history. On the first day of the fourth Test, a stadium attendance record of 1 lakh people was set. The first day of the 2013 Boxing Day Test saw 91, 092 spectators, shattering the venue’s previous attendance record.


For those who are unfamiliar, the first day of the Test match between India and Australia in Ahmedabad will be watched by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese. Because two dignitaries were present, day one tickets were initially locked out. However, Gujarat Cricket Association made tickets available on the first day, and fans reacted by filling the stadium in significant numbers. Modi and Albanese rode in the “bat-mobile” prior to the game and waved to the stadium’s 1 lakh spectators.

At Narendra Modi Stadium, more than 100,000 people have previously attended events. The IPL 2022 final between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals had the highest-ever attendance for a T20 cricket match with over 1 lakh spectators.
