VCA stadium gets top marks from ICC team


The VCA stadium, the brainchild of BCCI president Shashank Manohar who is also a former president of the VCA, is one of eight venues in India that will host World Cup matches, and Tetley’s team has termed it outstanding on various counts.
“The design of this playing surface should be, in my opinion, used as a blueprint for all new cricket stadiums,” Tetley, the ICC’s Events manager, has noted in his report. The Tetley-led inspection team visited the VCA stadium last month.
“Without doubt, this stadium’s playing surface has been well planned. The quality of the surface can be fully attributable to the clear foresight that was given to the design. The specification is ideally suited for the modern day requirements of a cricket stadium and for ICC events.

“Overall, the condition of the playing surfaces inspected in Nagpur is excellent and there are very few issues at the venue. This venue is extremely well designed, with the player facilities in particular outstanding.”
Security has been a huge talking point in these troubled times, and both the new stadium as well as the old VCA stadium that will be used as a practice venue have come in for great praise.

“This venue has set the standard for security systems at cricketing stadiums worldwide,” Tetley wrote of the ground that will host the second India-Sri Lanka one-dayer on Friday. “The CCTV system is brilliant technology.”
As for the old stadium, Tetley said, “This stadium was the primary venue for international matches prior to the opening of the new location. Therefore, all the requirements for international teams are already in place. This venue has no security issues. “
