Former India captain and legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar has received a big gift from the Mumbai Cricket Association, or MCA, on the occasion of his birthday. The Mumbai Cricket Association has decided that two permanent seats will again be held at the Wankhede Stadium for legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar and his wife. Earlier, the historic stadium in Wankhede had reserve seats for Gavaskar and his wife.
MCA officials have said that Gavaskar and his wife lost their seats nine years ago when the stadium was renovated and the grounds were rebuilt. Like last time, these two seats will be in the President's box. On these seats, Sunil Gavaskar and his wife can watch any kind of cricket match for free, whether it is an international or domestic or IPL match.
For your information, let us know that this stadium built in 1974 was 45 thousand spectators before, but in 2011 it was again prepared for the World Cup 2011 final and at that time the stadium had a viewership of around 33 thousand. . At the same time, the seats won by Gavaskar and his wife were also over. However, now again he will get a chance to sit in the President's box and watch the match.
The attachment of the Indian team to the Wankhede Stadium is high, as it was in this stadium that India won their second World Cup in 2011, when Dhoni's captaincy team defeated Sri Lanka. At the same time, Sachin Tendulkar played his last international match in this stadium. Not only this, on this ground, Ravi Shastri hit 6 sixes in an over. In this way, this stadium has its own importance for Indian cricket.
