ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium (Visakhapatnam)
Let’s get Reddy to rumble!
ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, located in Pothinamallayya Palem, Visakhapatnam, is surrounded by the blissful facade of the picturesque hills and the leafy ramble of trees swaying in breeze. It is the home ground of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. The stadium built in 2003 is known for its excellent drainage facilities. The well-manicured, lush-green outfield at the ground has also come in for praise. The seating capacity is expected to be increased to 50,000. In fact, the Test status was also granted recently. It is the ninth ground to be awarded the Test status in India.
Visakhapatnam’s pretty as a picture Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium faces testing times in 2016. After successfully hosting a range of ODIs and T20s it will host its first ever international test when England faces India in their third outing of the 2016-17 series. Bounded by verdant hills and boasting two-tier terracing, it meets all the criteria for a top-notch cricketing showcase.
