The Motera Stadium is bid to be the host for IPL 2020 Final, as per sources.

The Indian Premier League is all set to start in the month of March, 2020. Situated in a 63 acres of land, it has over 70 corporate boxes, swimming pools and much more.
The Motera Stadium witnessed many achievements over these years, becoming the stadium where Sunil Gavaskar completed 10,000 test cricket runs. Kapil Dev bagging 9 wickets in an innings is also a landmark of the same stadium. The Stadium can be the best venue to organise the IPL 2020 Final as it can gather a lot of crowd from the nearby areas and seating them.
Stadium to be jam packed during the IPL Final is one of the expectations kept by the BCCI from the stadium. As Cricket reaches newer heights and the need for larger stadiums arises, the Motera ground is all set to fulfill the expectations.
