Pitch and Outfield

The relatively short ground allows for power hitting. The pitch assists spinners and the ball does not bounce much and hence, batting second is not always beneficial, though dew factor sometimes plays a significant role. In recent matches, team batting second in a T20 match have even struggled to post even 80 runs on the board. The highest ODI Score here is 387 by India against West Indies, 2019.

History[edit]

The stadium hosted its first ODI match against Pakistan, in which Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored his maiden one day international century (148) in 2005. After being given Test status, it hosted its first test match in November 2016, between India and England. India won the match by 246 runs. The Stadium hosted its first T20I in February 2016 between India and Sri Lanka, in Which Ravichandran Ashwin took 4 wickets for 8 runs in his 4 over spell bundling out Sri Lanka for 83.

The stadium also hosted IPL matches and was the home ground of Deccan Chargers in 2012 and Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2015 along with Rising Pune Supergiants and Mumbai Indians together in 2016.

Although this Stadium did not host any group stage matches in the 2019 Indian Premier League, it was selected to host the Eliminator and Qualifier 2 of the tournament.[2]
