The latent need for a big ground and an exclusive cricket facility at Hyderabad culminated into creation of the state-of-the-art cricket stadium Uppal. Thanks to the initiatives, hard work of Mr. Vinod, the President of HCA, Hon. Secretary Mr. Shivlal Yadav (Now retired to become the Vice President of BCCI) and support of all members of managing body and staff, Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium (RGICS) is a world class cricket stadium where the people of Hyderabad can enjoy the game of cricket in style either in day or at night under flood lights.
