The new cricket stadium in Amingaon, Assam, was inaugurated by the state’s chief minister.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Tuesday inaugurated the Amingaon Cricket Ground and Pavilion at Kumar Bhaskar Barman Khetra in North Guwahati, which was built by the Assam Cricket Association (ACA).
The first BCCI-approved match
From Wednesday, the field will host its first BCCI-approved domestic match, which will be played between Meghalaya and Sikkim.
Beginning this season, age-group and women’s cricket competitions will be held.
Following an examination, the BCCI has already designated the Amingaon Cricket Ground as a recognised BCCI site for holding age-group and women’s cricket events beginning this season.

Seven BCCI under-25 men’s state matches have also been allocated by the Indian cricket board. A one-day competition will start on November 17.
Sarma praised the ACA’s ambitious efforts to improve the state’s cricket facilities in his remarks on the historic occasion.
Assist the state in the organisation of several cricket tournaments
The gorgeous Amingaon Cricket Ground, as well as other amenities created there, will not only contribute to the city’s current cricket infrastructure, but will also help the state organise numerous cricket competitions.
Assam’s immediate needs
At the same time, the chief minister emphasised the urgent need to produce a large number of high-quality cricket players, and he asked the ACA to build a advanced cricket school to train our future cricketers.
A total of 52 new stadiums are being constructed around the state.
“We have set aside Rs 150 crore for the construction of a new sports centre at Chandrapur, on the outskirts of the city, to give the best facilities to our athletes.” In addition, 52 new stadiums are being built across the state,” Sarma said.
Commenced a number of cricket infrastructure projects
It’s worth noting that the Assam Cricket Association has lately embarked on a number of cricket infrastructure development initiatives around the state in order to elevate Assam’s cricketing scene and pave the way for the emergence of many more outstanding players.
Assam’s overall athletic development
Bimal Borah, Assam’s sports and youth affairs minister, addressed to the crowd and praised ACA’s endeavours for the growth of the game, as well as the state government’s dedication to the all-round development of sports in Assam.
