Established in 2017, the BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium has already hosted a few international cricket matches and has received positive reviews from players and fans alike. So far, it has staged six T20Is and four ODIs in addition to the only Test played here between Afghanistan and West Indies in November 2019.
Team India has been dominant at the venue, winning all their four fixtures (three T20Is and one ODI) played here.
With the traditional home and away format returning for the IPL 2023, Lucknow Super Giants are set to play their home matches at the BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium.
Interestingly, no team has breached the 200-run mark in T20s at the venue.
With LSG’s squad possessing the firepower in the form of big-hitters like KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, Nicholas Pooran, Kyle Mayers and Marcus Stoinis alongside others, expect it to be raining fours and sixes which will leave the fans awestruck with some sublime batting performances!
