Australia Wins 2023 World Cup Cricket Final at the Mighty Narendra Modi Stadium

After a slow start in the series where Australia lost its first two matches our team started to get its act together.

There were some incredible individual performances such as the batting innings by by Glenn Maxwell that inspired the team to believe they could win from any dire position.

Well done team and to Travis Head for a superb knock in the final following brilliant display of fielding - including Head's remarkable outfield catch.

A collection of excellent pictures of the final match played on November 19 2023 is assembled by The Guardian - See HERE

The final was played in the recently completed Narendra Modi Stadium - the largest cricket stadium in the world.

A good account of the history of the stadium can be found on Wikipedia HERE

The stadium belongs to the Gujarat Cricket Association and the two pictures in this article are credit to a gallery on their site HERE

The roof of the stadium is a true Lightweight Structure and is based on a complete horizontal "bicycle wheel" concept with an outer planar compression ring (or rim of a wheel) and an inner tension open ring or hub. The redeveloped stadium was designed by the architectural firm Populus. The LSAA has been fortunate to have Populus deliver some keynote addresses at some of our conferences.

Between the two are radial cables of alternating shapes. Every other radial cable has a peak formed by a pickup cable running out to the higher outer compression ring. We might call this a "ridge cable". The radial cables between these ridge cables are "valley cables". Between the radial cables is tensioned fabric panels giving a very clean underside to the roof.
