Barabati Stadium in Cuttack (Odisha) hosted only the third One Day International in India, when India beat England by five wickets in January 1982 to win the series 2–1. The Sri Lankans were greeted with an underprepared pitch that provided wildly unpredictable bounce in the first Test match here, five years later. When the West Indian captain, Clive Lloyd, put Viv Richards in at No. 3 ahead of a match against England in St John’s, Grenada in April 1974, Vengsarkar created his best Test score of 166 as India registered an innings and 67-run victory over the Lankans.

The only other Test encounter here, against New Zealand in 1995–96, was plagued by rain, providing less than 180 overs of cricket. In the lone innings of his return tour, Narendra Hirwani took 6 for 59 for the Kiwis in this match.

The ground has been altered significantly over the years, from the old to the contemporary. A world-class players facility, expanded seating (capacity now 20,000), a four-story Media Centre, an LED electronic scoreboard, and various spectator facility improvements have improved both players’ and spectators’ comfort.
