Wankhede Stadium holds a basket of memories for the Cricket fans around the world. However, the Indians kept a special reserved space for that stadium. Not a big circumference, but hige enough for the crowd to spurge in and create a huge “noise.” The noise does enough for the commentators to feel dead while commenting!
Wankhede indeed is special for Indians. The Indian who sung “Vandemataram” whole heartedly, cheering the then Captain Dhoni! That Wankhede where a love woven dream got fulfilled from Dhoni’s bat!
The Wankhede Stadium, will still hold the love forever, but with some bits of renovations.
Before the first day of the India-Australia match, the looks are changing at the Wankhede Stadium. This stadium in Mumbai is in full fledge. The picture was released by the Mumbai Cricket Association.
