Ekana Cricket Stadium Profile

The Ekana Stadium is based in Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh and is India’s third-largest cricket venue. It was founded in 2017 and hosts Test match, ODI and T20I cricket. Also known by its longer name of Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, it holds 50,000 people. It was also chosen as the third home ground in India for the Afghanistan national cricket team in 2019. They had previously played games at Dehradun and Greater Noida.

The first T20I clash to be held at the ground took place in November 2018 when India faced the West Indies. That game made the ground India’s 53rd stadium to host an international cricket contest. It also saw Rohit Sharma become the first Indian player to score an international century at the venue.

Since then the Ekana Stadium hosted its first ODI and first Test match when Afghanistan took on the West Indies on both occasions in November 2019. The Ekana Stadium has not yet played host to matches from the Indian Premier League.

What to look for when betting on matches at Motera Stadium

Due to the fact there have only been a handful of international fixtures played at the ground, there isn’t a great deal of stats to assess. West Indian off-break bowler Rahkeem Cornwall took the most wickets in a match when bagging seven in a Test against Afghanistan in 2019. Young Afghan pace-bowling all-rounder Karim Janat took five wickets in a T20I. In ODIs, chasing looks to be the best option.
