Popular content creator, Dhananjay (@Dhananjay_Tech) shared a video on Twitter that will blow your mind. In the video, you can witness how the space underneath the Sector 15 Sanpada flyover in Navi Mumbai has been transformed into a sports complex.

The sports complex is equipped with facilities and houses, what look like, basketball and badminton courts. A group of people are seen playing cricket. The best part? Anyone can play here for free. Dhananjay goes on to explain that the sports arena underneath the Navi Mumbai flyover is covered with netting to prevent the balls from flying off into the streets.
