What the actual story is?

The newly-built Greater Noida cricket stadium officially became the home ground for Afghanistan cricketers. Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) signed a memorandum of understanding on this matter. Under-19 cricket teams of Afghanistan and Zimbabwe play their first one-day match in this stadium. The stadium, spread across 39 acres, is located next to Jaypee Resort. The ground has already hosted UP-Vadodara Ranji cricket tournament this month.
