It will reportedly have four dressing rooms, a clubhouse with over 50 rooms, 76 corporate boxes and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
The complex will also include an indoor cricket academy, and will cover an area of 63 acres, with three outdoor practice grounds included in representational images.

The previous stadium held 54,000 spectators, but was demolished in 2016 to make way for the new ground.
