Well, looks like the under construction stands A,B and C will be ready for IPL 3...... Infact the ticket prize have also been allotted... The prize range in these stands are prized at 1000 rs for lower tier and 1500 rs for upper tier....The middle tier as been mentioned as some Box, don't know what exactly it is.....

I got to know about this through CSK's official website while trying to book tickets.....

First of all who is this 'they' you are talking about?

Second, how did they 'fool' Chennai?

Why this complex of feeling victimized?

Exactly...any cricket lover will say Chepauk has the best pitch in India. I was sad they were going to build a new stadium far away from the city. It is great that our dear Chepauk continues to be the ground where we will watch cricket

Why the superlative (best pitch)? May be you trully believe it is the best and I can certainly understand that feeling. But it does not even have to be the best.

(IMHO EdenGardens is the best, just for the sheer size, atmosphere crowd and the pitch. Chennai comes second in my personal list of favorite grounds in India.) Either way, Chepauk is a great ground which has provided several years of entertainment to millions of fans and is the host for some of the magnificient matches. I am glad that they chose to restore it instead of abandoning it.

I read in one of the above posts/links that a critical design consideration is to bring back the swing, by allowing the sea breeze to enter the grounds through the stands. I hope the science works allowing the craftsmen (bowlers) to display their art. I want to see Zaheer Khan and Shreesanth in their present form playing in this ground. Hopefully we can witness Mr. Balaji too, especially his late swing like the legendary Kapildev himself.

Iam talking about the pitch not the stadia or atmosphere...take a look at every test match that happened in the last 20 years in Chepauk except the Ind vs SA 2008. They were all exciting matches with tight finish. It is because there is always something for the batters and bowlers (fast and spin)

BCCI official had said the following

Daljit says Chennai has the best Test wicket in India and credits the ground staff for their stupendous effort in preparing result-oriented pitches.

"I think Chennai is the best Test wicket in India. The wickets there are good and it always gives a result. If you see the weather in Chennai, it is hot, hotter and hottest and there is no other season there. So over five days, the pitch will degenerate and wear out. But if you see in the North, you have good wickets, but if you have Test match there in November, December or October it is very difficult for the wicket to wear out like in warmer places. I think the Chennai ground staff is very good in preparing wickets

Got your point Satisht77. Chennai is also one of the favorite hunting grounds for India.

I was trying to say that even if it is not the best (which it may very well be), we should extend its life as it has brought us some of the memorable entertainment in the game of cricket.

I cannot wait to see a test match after the stadium is fully constructed. I am expecting it to be awesome. I know I am being selfish when I say that the BCCI quota system is robbing us of the pleasure to an extent. (No! I am not feeling victimized. It is pure and simple selfishness!!! )

good work.!

wooooooooooooooooooow 3 stand's construction ready to complete!! (may be 75% exterior finish .. but not fully constructed) before IPL 3.

this stand similar to LORD's Ground Mound stand's.
Where is pavilion in this stadium (after renovation)??

They fooled chennai again?? Good people will watch at new stand due to huge price ticket's 1000 and 1500rs. Fool people will watch at old and existing stand. look 200rs ticket price lower tier.!

MAC Stadium is one best test venue in India.

One thing why Stadium and state association ready to open early? i never seen any stadium full construction finish work like england and australia venue's. see this new 3 stands ready to install bucket seat without cover cement and paint on steps. Every stadium need perfect construction finish. there is alot of bribe and corrupt by state administration. This stadium need australia and english ground bucket seat's

Well, i don't think that they would install permanent seating arrangements, with very little time left for the games to begin....

I think they would be putting up temporary plastic chairs as usual.....

may be temporary plastic chairs like chinnaswamy stadium seating arragments during IPL and International matches.

I don't Understand Why TNCA decided to re-construct MAC Stadium?. Original plan build weatherproof cricket stadium (outskirt from chennai) was good idea?. Chennai is big city (metro's in india) so they should build 80000-90000 seaters world class cricket stadium. It isn't good MAC 45k capacity. Chennai is best crowds at stadium in india so far. There is no space further development present stadium. Is there any plan to build another cricket stadium outskirt in chennai after complete renovation existing stadium..!! If Our Country less population then 45k seaters capacity is Ok. Australia built MCG 100,000 Capacity and SCG 55,000 Capacity? so We are Re-building and renovation like wankhede and MAC Stadium - 45,000 Capacity??.

This stadium goes to Legacy.

Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad - big metro cities name .. They don't have 60-80k capacity stadium.. Large population. Poor planning BCCI and State Association official.

Pune International Cricket Centre is one best cricket venue in India (when construction complete). They have very good space future development (it is possible expansion upto 95,000 capactiy).

It isn't possible retractable roof in the future. MAC is existing stadium. There is no space. Rectractable roof need more space and construction will be difficult. We never seen any cricket ground have rectractable roof..!! people think MELBOURNE (colenal stadium)?. This isn't regular cricket ground but multi-sport's use in Melbourne.

Good make over. btw, will the stands on the right hand side also be brought down and new stands built? I hope that is the plan.

Best pitch?? not sure if its chennai but Chennai can boast for having best crowd/spectators. They are so well informed and sportive. Even a small milestone reached by a player (in terms of career wickets / runs / catches etc) is known to the spectators (who read the newspaper before coming to the matches). And remember the India Pak Test match when Sachin valiantly fought but India lost by a slim margin? After applauding Sachin's for his effort, the crowd them very sportively applauded for Pak's victory. If you ask any Aussie player abt his fav venue in India, he'd say its Chepauk.

But test cricket is not drawing huge crowds as was in the past.There was a time people used to sleep near the stadium inorder to ensure purchase of ticket and a vantage seat in the gallery. People outside were seen glued to their transistors listening to the commentary and many people in all walks of life were eager to know the latest scores and other particulars.Those thrilling days are gone.Now u find empty stands when test matches are conducted and even for ODIs there appears to be decling intetrest as time goes by.All this due to introduction of safety gadgets to the batsmen unfair rules to the disadvantage of the bowlers and the day and night matches where the due factor is playing havoc to the team bowling second.Unless conditions are equal cricket will be a dying game.

The main reason is actually commercialistion of the game by our own BCCI. Test cricket still draws good crowd in England, Aus and SA. And even in India, Test Cricket has to be played only in 5-6 main venues - Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore and Mohali..I dono why they have matches in centres like Nagpur, Ahd etc where we only find empty stands. Recently, the Ind /SA match in Nagpur had virtually no spectators while the match at Kolkata attracted good crowd. Let them play the ODI and T20s in other venues.
