  • Floats Rs. 14 lakh tender for cleaning the land
  • Real estate prices at Hanchya-Sathagalli poised for a boom
  • Facility to boost local talents of Mysuru, says State Cricket Body

Mysore/Mysuru: The Karnataka State Cricket Association’s (KSCA) plan to construct a state-of-the-art International Cricket Stadium at Hanchya-Sathagalli in Mysuru received traction this morning with the site visit by Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) Chairman Yashaswi S. Somashekar, Commissioner G.T. Dinesh Kumar and a team of officers.

MUDA has already decided to allot 20-acre and 20-gunta land for the Stadium at Hanchya-Sathagalli Layout ‘B Zone’ to the south of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) Regional Centre on the Outer Ring Road that is bound by roads on all sides. The KSCA is planning to construct a state-of-the-art International Cricket Stadium there. The KSCA Mysuru Zone had sent a proposal to the MUDA eight years back for the land allotment. It is a suitable land as it is located at a prime locality on the Ring Road where four roads meet and there is good connectivity to Bengaluru.

Next to VTU

The exact location of the level plot is next to VTU and is located between Deve Gowda Circle and KSRTC Sathagalli Bus Depot. MUDA will hand over the land to KSCA on a 30-year lease at a price of Rs. 2,100 per square metre, totalling an amount of Rs. 18 crore. The land comes under Survey Nos. 84, 85, 88, 104, 105, 107, 109 and 106.

During the inspection today, the MUDA Chairman said that the area that is full of shrubs and bushes will be cleaned and a tender has been floated for Rs. 14 lakh for the purpose. “CM Basavaraj Bommai has consented to allot the land and the Cabinet will clear the allotment order and the amount levied by MUDA subsequently,” he said.

On Survey No. 106, there is a Government water body and Revenue Department has to clear the allotment. KSCA can retain the water body as it will be an added attraction to the Stadium, he opined. On the timeframe for Government approval, Somashekar said that the file is with the CM’s Office and it will come up in the Cabinet soon. “All the issues will be considered by the Government including the lease amount and the land use patterns. MP Pratap Simha is coordinating with MUDA and KSCA,” he said.

KSCA sources told SOM that the Mysuru Stadium will be a world-class facility that will be better than Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. “We are happy that things are moving in right direction and once the Stadium is a reality, it will boost the cricketing talent of Mysuru region — Mysuru, Mandya, Kodagu, Hassan and Chamarajanagar.

MUDA Superintending Engineer (SE) Channakeshava, Executive Engineer (EE) Dharmendra Kumar, Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) Mohan, Town Planning Assistant Director Yajnendra, AE Prasad and other officers were present.

    International cricket stadium?
    Cricket is a colonial sport played in just a handful countries. In countries such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, where cricket is a sport, Rugby has become the national sport. In England, Football ( soccer) is the national sport. In West Indies Athletics has taken over.
    In Australia, the Tennis grand slam : Australian Open is taking place.
    In terms of world sport, Football ( soccer) reigns supreme, and after Qatar’s success in holding the World Cup Football, it will be the USA, where Football( soccer) is fast developing under Major Soccer League ( MLS) Federation.
    China is also developing Club Football, and within a dfew years China will host the World Cup.
    That leaves , India, nurturing this old minority sport called Cricket, demonstrating that India is still a Third World country, unable to shake off its colonial past . Hence this cricket!!

  3. Pradeep says:

    Instead of cricket stadium, better to build multi purpose sports like Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore. Honestly its no use of just having a cricket stadium where few cricket matches are played in a year. Its high time Karnataka people win Olympic medal. So every facility needs to be provided for that.

  4. Mann Ki Baat! says:

    The idea behind this stadium is not to encourage sports-as boring as cricket, but to develop an outfit through which cash flows into the pcokets of officials.
    Hey @Shiva,the poster under Yoga, these officials like you, money to them by any means. Morality does not matter to them just like you!

  5. Ramesh says:

    It is better to have stadium for all sports including cricket.
    Otherwise, the money and the space is wasted. Benefit will not be for many.

  6. Naveed says:

    Yes, a stadium for muti sport facility is a good option to have in Mysuru which is very sparsely represented in any other sport especially athletics, than cricket.

  7. Avukader Kutty Naha says:

    Hey Naveed
    Like India, Islamic countries do not win many gold medals in Olympics, and the athletics in India and there too are abysmal.
    Indians are not good in any sport, except cricket. Look at the tally of Olympic gold list. India is right at the bottom and China is right at the top.
    India can win many golds idf it is Olympics of Corruption!
