Lucknow cricket stadium just gone through name change ,welcomed Cricketers with full house.

Lucknow : BCCI chief curator Daljit Singh, pitch No 6 of the Ekana International Cricket Stadium has been chosen to host the first international match here when Rohit Sharma’s boys take on West Indies in the second T20I on Tuesday.

Local officials were in two minds whether to offer a batsmen-friendly pitch but finally everyone agreed on the sixth strip that promises equal opportunities to both sides. The game is expected to be a competitive one as the black soil, composed of Odisha’s Bolangir soil, should produce good bounce.
