Jharkhand's capital is set to host its first international cricket match when India take on England in a ODI in the newly built 39,000-capacity JSCA International Stadium here today.

The stadium, located in the outskirts of the city in Dhurwa, is around 10 minutes away from the Munda Airport.

“Built on a total area of 26.5 acres, the complex houses the stadium itself, another International Cricket Council (ICC) regulation ground, a tennis academy, indoor cricket facility and swimming pool,” Jharkhand State CA president Amitabh Choudhary told IANS.

The stadium does not have any fencing like the new ground in Rajkot, which hosted the first ODI. “The ground does not have fences which gives spectators an unrestricted view. There are two major pavilions with five viewing levels,” said Choudhary.
