Most of the people are asking why the name has been changed to Narendra Modi cricket stadium?  There was a time when Narendra Modi was the President of the Gujrat cricket association and also the Chief Minister of Gujrat. Also, Narendra Modi is very close to this state of India because this is the place where he is born and brought up. All the above reasons made it possible in making this cricket stadium in Gujarat.
