The Vidarbha Cricket Association-managed ground, which is the only overseas venue where you may enter directly from the road, has always made news for various reasons. With the scalps of Ken Rutherford, Ian Smith, and Ewen Chatfield in Nagpur, Chetan Sharma becomes the first Cricket World Cup hat-trick hero. All three were bowled.
When India won by a staggering margin of 321 runs against New Zealand in the Reliance World Cup final league encounter in 1987, Sunil Gavaskar scored his only one-day, and World Cup, century. This is Sachin Tendulkar’s favorite ground for centuries. After four in Chepauk, Sachin Tendulkar has three here.
It was a tragic period when, during the fifth game of the India-New Zealand ODI series in 1995, the brickwall of the East Stand collapsed and nine people died.
As for the pitch, it was formerly just another docile one until the BCCI-appointed pitch committee suggested re-laying in 1999. It took a long time for the wicket to acquire its intended form.
