'''History of the ground'''

The Sardar Vallabhai Patel Stadium was established in the year 1981. The stadium hosted a single International match between India and England. The result of that single match was also against India. India lost that match to England, and after that no international match took place in this stadium.

However, the reason that no international match took place here in Sardar Vallabhai Patel Stadium is not the loss of India against England, but it was because of the new Stadium that came up popularly known as the Gujarat Stadium, just one year later to the Sardar Vallabhai Patel Stadium. Since then, the Gujarat Stadium began hosting all the international One Days as well as Test matches. The Gujarat Stadium was later renamed as Sardar Patel Stadium.
