D.Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, which has hosted two IPL finals in the past, will be hosting its first-ever first class cricket match when Mumbai take on West Zone rivals Gujarat in their final Ranji Trophy Group A fixture at the end of this year. The December 29 to January 1 Ranji tie between Mumbai and Gujarat could not be held at the Wankhede Stadium as an other event has been scheduled at the venue during that time. D.Y. Patil Stadium has hosted several IPL matches, including the finals of 2008 and 2010, and was also to host a ODI against Australia a few years ago but the match was washed out.PTI
