The Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS; Bengali: শের-ই-বাংলা জাতীয় ক্রিকেট স্টেডিয়াম), also called Mirpur Stadium, is a cricket ground in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Located 10 kilometres away from the city centre in Mirpur, the ground holds approximately 25,000 people, and is named for the Bengali statesman A. K. Fazlul Huq, who was accorded the title Sher-e-Bangla ("tiger of Bengal"). The ground was originally constructed for football in the late 1980s, and first hosted matches at the 1987 Asian Club Championship. The venue was taken over by the Bangladesh Cricket Board in 2004, replacing the Bangabandhu National Stadium as the home of both the men's and women's national teams. The stadium has a field diemension of 186 m X 136 m. The first international match at the redeveloped ground was held in December 2006, and the stadium has since hosted matches of the 2011 World Cup, 2012 and 2014 Asia Cup, along with majority of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) matches. The finals of the 2014 ICC World Twenty20 and Women's World Twenty20 were hosted at the stadium. The first International T20 was hosted in this stadium on 11th Oct 2011, Bangladesh vs West Indies. Till 30th Apr 2015 the venue has hosted 19 T20I. [1]

Facilities[edit]

The ground is a state of the art stadium, equipped with world class facilities. It is considered one of the best grounds in the subcontinent. The most striking feature of the ground is the modern drainage facility. The ground was originally built for football and athletics and was hence rectangular in shape. To bring it back to a shape suited for cricket, a lot of renovation had to be done, and also the athletics tracks had to be dug up. About three feet of soil was excavated to remove all the red clay. PVC pipes were fit in before filling it up with rock chips and sand and then grass. The slope is nice and even, a difference of 29 inches from the wicket to the boundary. The ground was fitted with floodlights in 2009; it is able to host day/night cricket matches.

First Test,ODI and T20I[edit]

The ground hosted its first Test match on 25 May 2007 where the home team played India. The first ODI took place in 18 December 2005 where Bangladesh played Scotland. On 11th October 2011 the stadium hosted its first T20I between Bangladesh And West Indies.
