Nehru Stadium

 

Detail~
Nehru Stadium is a cricket stadium with with many sport clubs included and capacity for 25,000 people. It is the home ground for Holkars in Ranji Trophy. The Stadium attained an infamy when a ODI match between India and Sri Lanka on 25 December 1997 was abandoned after the third over of the first innings. The game was abandoned because the captains and umpires felt that the pitch was dangerous for all 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. Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket stadium in the same city hosted the last ODI match between India and England in April 2006. Right now many sports clubs are available here to make state level players with proper guidance.
