DY Patil Sports Cricket Stadium Batting Or Bowling Pitch?

The entire outfield has been thoroughly tilled, with 200 tonnes of soil imported from South Africa to give a bouncy and authentic surface. Sand-based grass is used in the main ground’s outfield, which not only reduces player injuries but also allows for easier drainage. Water dispersal will be aided by a drainage system underneath the main surface. The four floodlight towers are taller than usual, preventing glare for batters during evening games. As a result, it is classified as a batting pitch.


The DY Patil Stadium was named as Mumbai City FC’s home field in the Indian Super League in 2014. DY Patil Stadium hosted all of Mumbai City FC’s home games. The stadium also hosted the Hero ISL 2014 Final between Atlético de Kolkata and Kerala Blasters FC. It won out over Cooperage Ground. The stadium will be used again for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Finals in 2020.

With a seating capacity of 55,000, it is India’s ninth-largest cricket ground. The stadium has bucket seats and cantilever roofs instead of pillars, making it less expensive than standard stadiums. This place hosts an inter-school cricket match every year.

There is a pool, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, nine tennis hard courts, four indoor badminton courts, and other amenities in the stadium. The stadium’s cantilever ceiling avoids the need for any supports and allows fans to observe the game from wherever inside the stand.
