A long standing record MCG crowd is tipped to fall this Thursday at the hands of the Narendra Modi Stadium, with the largest capacity ground in the world expected to attract 100,000 plus through the gates.

The 132,000 seat arena in Ahmedabad is set to play host to the last remaining red ball match between India and Australia for their 2023 series, with the touring side hoping to level the score before a switch to coloured clothing.

As it stands, the 2013-14 Ashes series notched up the current record of 91,112 on home shores, with analysts predicting the fourth Test will bowl over that figure by a significant number.

Concerns were initially raised with travelling Australian fans worried about securing their ticket, with a hefty percentage set aside for local students and families, but those have since been squashed, according to the AAP. 

With the monumental occasion set to rewrite the history books, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese will make the trip over to be in attendance before the start of play, with opening ceremony commitments.

Companying Albanese during his first visit to India will be the country's Prime Minister himself, Modi, in which the ground was named after in 2021, following a five-year rebuild of the stadium.

India head into the final Test already retaining the Border-Gavasker Trophy, with a 2-1 lead enough to secure the silverware, with the efforts of the away side still to be on show with pride on the line.
