Nehru Stadium, Indore

Nehru Stadium, Indore

Nehru Stadium located in Indore, India is a cricket stadium with a capacity of 25,000. It is the Home ground for Holkars in Ranji trophy

The Stadium attained infamy when a ODI match between India and Sri Lanka on 25 December 1997 was abandoned after the 3rd over of the first innings. The game was abandoned because the captains, 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 [citation required]. 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.

Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket Ground in the same city hosted the last ODI match between India and England on 15 April 2006. It is unknown if Nehru Stadium will ever host another international match.
