In  Ahmedabad, the Motera stadium is decked up to host the Australian counterpart, Anthony Albanese, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the opening day of the final test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. 

Security has doubled, and special protection groups also hire to protect the stadium during the match. There are around 100,000 people came on this day, and they beat the highest attendance at eden gardens during the test series matches before the people's capacity was reduced to 67,000. While PM Modi is visited earlier too during the inauguration of the National Games in previous years, this is still the first time when he watched the test match after the stadium renamed it.  

The visit of Albanese and Modi become part of this inauguration celebration. 

Both of PM are supposed to take the stadium round in a gold-plated golf car. It was the same car golf on which the PM takes a lap of honors when national games are played at this stadium.  

There is a portable dais installed in front of the sightscreen for short-term function before beginning the match and removed once when the program is over.  

Even they watch the optional practice cricket session of two teams become tough because of the security protocols put in place. You should be asked if the presence of two heads of state and close to full capacity stadium cause full pressure on players. Both of the PMs are coming here. It is an exciting time for them. So the talk is also completely around them. Rahul Dravid, Head coach, also reach earlier in a big crowd to attend the inauguration.
