IPL 2021 is just around the corner, and six stadiums are selected for this year’s edition. Arun Jaitley Stadium, Eden Gardens, M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Chepauk Stadium, Wankhede Stadium, and Narendra Modi Stadium. All these stadiums are very important in Indian Cricket, which makes it important for everyone to know about them. Here is the next stadium of this series.
Wankhede is the home of Mumbai Indians in the IPL. They will not be playing any games at this venue. We will not be hearing the Paltan go wild for their team, but Mumbaikars and Wankhede will surely miss them.
A lot of historic and important matches have been played here, including the 2011 World Cup finals. The ground is situated near the Marine Lines, which allows the audience to watch the match in one of the most prime locations in the city.
