The Barabati Stadium is a cricket and association football venue in the east Indian city of Cuttack, Odisha. It is the home ground of Odisha cricket team and is operated by Odisha Cricket Association. Odisha First Division League football matches are also held at the stadium. The Barabati Stadium is one of the older grounds in India, having hosted several touring sides – including the MCC, the West Indies team and the Australians - before it hosted its first international match.
History and Development
The Barabati Stadium in Cuttack hosted only the third One Day International in this country, in January 1982, when India beat England by five wickets to lift the series 2-1. In the first Test match here five seasons later, the Sri Lankans were greeted with an underprepared wicket affording vastly unpredictable bounce. Dilip Vengsarkar, then at the most dizzying heights of his career, made his highest Test score of 166, his fourth century in eight Tests, when no other batsman on either side crossed 60. The Lankans were rolled over twice as India seized an innings and 67-run victory. Kapil Dev bagged his 300th Test victim, bowling Rumesh Ratnayake with a ball that failed to sit up.
The only other Test match here, against New Zealand in 1995-96, was badly affected by rain, affording less than 180 overs of playing time. Narendra Hirwani, on a comeback trail, took 6 for 59 in New Zealand's only innings, the best bowling figures here. In barabati the total seating capacity is 46700+ .
Though it isn’t one of the regular Test venues anymore, it continues to enjoy the status of international venue and hosts One-Day Internationals regularly. India have won one of the two Test matches played here, and have a 9-4 win-loss record in ODIs.
The Barabati Stadium is an alternate home venue for the Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders. It was an adopted home venue for former Indian Premier League franchise Deccan Chargers. Barabati Stadium is both the venue for Indian Premier League and Odisha Premier League.
