The aesthetic viewing experience in cricket is not much popular as in football. However, there is scope for that. The HPCA Cricket Stadium in Dharamshala is one of the most scenic stadiums in the world. Set amidst snow-capped mountains, it makes for a brilliant viewing experience on TV, as well. There are similar stadiums in New Zealand, as well. India, too, can plan a few other stadiums to draw more crowds. It can also be included as a part of tourism to those regions. On that note, here, we take a look at three hill stations in India that need a good cricket stadium for an excellent scenic experience like in Dharamshala.
1) Ooty – Tamil Nadu
Ooty is one of the most popular hill stations in the country. It is also well-developed and has quite a few good hotels to accommodate a top cricket game.
There are a lot of scenic options available if a cricket stadium is possible in this region. Fans in this area hardly get to watch a live cricket game and this would be a chance for them.
2) Wayanad – Kerala
Wayanad is one of the hill stations in India that need a good cricket stadium for an excellent scenic experience like in Dharamshala. This place in Kerala already hosts a few important Ranji or other List A games.
Probably, a good cricket facility here will help the talent in and around this region. There is a lot of greenery that would also help the viewing experience.
3) Darjeeling – West Bengal
Located in the Siliguri district, the Kanchenjunga Stadium is not far away. However, that is not dedicated to cricket alone.
Darjeeling can offer the view of a few snow-capped peaks and that makes it an interesting option. It is also a popular tourism destination, anyways. Probably a few IPL games here could help.
