Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium or Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNS), is a cricket ground in the Mirpur Thana district of Dhaka, Bangladesh. It holds 55,000 people and was built in 2006. At first, it was named "Mirpur Stadium," but the Bangladeshi government later renamed it as "Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium." The ground is one of the most well equipped and has world class facilities. It is considered one of the best grounds in the subcontinent. The most striking feature of the ground is the drainage facility which is probably the best in the subcontinent. The ground was originally built for football and athletics and was hence rectangular in shape. To bring it back to a shape suited for cricket, a lot of demolition had to be done, and also the athletics tracks had to be dug up. About three feet of soil was excavated to remove all the red clay. PVC pipes were fit in before filling it up with rock chips and sand and then grass. The slope is nice and even, a difference of 29 inches from the wicket to the boundary.show more
