Aerial view of cricket stadiums in India

I was comparing size of cricket stadiums in Google maps satellite view and thought of putting them in one place with a consistent zoom level. Here are few of my favorites

Brarabati Stadium, Cuttack, The home ground



This has been the center of Orissa Cricket Association where my cousins used play for state.

Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Hyderabad, Nearest Ground



This is the city where I live now, have watch many IPL matches here , tough it has been a bad ground for home IPL team.

Chepauk, Chennai

Home for Dravid, Srinath, Prasad, Kumble. Reminds me 1996 world cup quarter final when India trashed Pakisthan.

Remind me Kumble's 10 wickets in an innings.

Mohali, Chandigarh



Unconventional low lights , 18 in numbers due to proximity with airport

Wankhade, Mumbai

Biggest ground in India , with capacity more than 1.2 Lakhs , more than double of any other ground in India.

I have not included many other test ground like Ahmadabad, Kanpur etc. to void the post to be very lengthy.
