The Sardar Patel Stadium—or Motera as it is simply known—was first built in 1982 when the state government of Gujarat donated 50 acres of land for its construction. So far, Motera has held one T20I (Pakistan’s final international on Indian soil, played back in 2012), 12 Test matches and 24 ODIs—the last of which, between India and Sri Lanka in November 2014, was also the final game it hosted before it closed for reconstruction.
