Chhattisgarh's first cricket stadium, with a seating capacity of 60,000, will be ready by August, state Sports Minister Brijmohan Agrawal said here on Wednesday.

"Hyderabad-based Nagarajuna Construction Company is giving final touches to the stadium located at around 20 km from here," said Agrawal.

The stadium is being built at village Parsada in Naya Raipur, which will replace present capital Raipur by the year 2011.

"All the major construction works including pavilion, electronic score board, media centre, commentary box and six huge stands have been completed and the stadium will be ready by the end of August," the minister said.

The government will construct an expressway to connect Raipur to the stadium, Agrawal said.
