(4.6/5 based on 45 reviews on the web)
Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, also known as Khandheri Cricket Stadium is a cricket stadium in Rajkot, India.It is Gujarat's first solar powered stadium.HistoryInitially, the stadium was being used for Ranji Trophy matches, when the spectator stands were still being constructed. With the stands completed, the ground can hold 28,000 fans. The stadium is a part of a larger sports complex that will include venues for other sports such as badminton, basketball, and volleyball. It will host Saurashtra Cricket Association matches along with Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground.It is a state of the art cricket stadium. The media box here is similar in design to the one at Lord's Cricket Ground, London.To facilitate spectator movement, there are several aisles between seat columns and lots of entrances/exits for the three stands. There is also a spacious passage running around the stadium, between the stands and the outer wall, to enable easy movement.A 30-acre portion of agricultural land next to the Jamnagar highway was acquired around 2004. Construction began in 2006 and the total cost, including land, is said to be around Rs 75 crore around US$14 million. The SCA shifted its offices from the cramped seventh floor of a commercial building in the city to the stadium which has been hosting first-class matches since late 2008.
Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Rajkot Edition.

  • Khandheri Stadium Rajkot became the Second stadium in India and first stadium in Gujarat Solar powered. M.A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is India‚Äôs first solar powered stadium. Indian Cricket Captain MS Dhoni inaugurate the solar power plant in the Khandheri stadium. SCA- Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, situated 15 kms from the Rajkot city on the road to Jamnagar, has installed 50 KWP solar rooftop system which was inaugurated before the start of the third ODI on 18 October 2015 between India and South Africa. SCA has also plans to put up additional capacity in the near future to pioneer green power generation.
  • Good stadium. One of its first type in Gujarat. Build nicely. The well-engineered stadium takes care of good view from each seat/angle. Pretty fast outfield.
