However, all the international as well as national cricket matches take place at the "Holkar Stadium which is situated at Race Course Road, Indore and a plethora of different sports activities take place at the Nehru Stadium which also partly serves as the Headquarters of the Air-Force wing of the Western Command of the National Cadet Corps (India).
Nehru Stadium sports a statue of Col. C.K. Nayudu, Indore's favourite son of that era, outside its main entrance as a concession to tradition.
The game was abandoned because the captains and umpires felt that the pitch was dangerous for the players to play on. The match referee concurred and a 30-over exhibition match was held to placate the restless crowd.
The stadium was suspended by ICC from holding matches for 2 years. The Stadium returned to host one last ODI match on 31 March 2001 where Sachin Tendulkar created history by becoming the first player to reach 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.
