About Attraction

The Maharani Usha Raje Holkar Trust Stadium (Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket Ground), has been formally renamed as the Holkar Cricket Stadium, and has a seating capacity of around 30,000 spectators !! It is equipped with flood-lights for night matches, for both ODIs and Test formats !! It hosted its first-ever match in 2006: India v/s England !!

 This ground also stages the majority of Madhya Pradesh cricket team's home matches in the Ranji Trophy !! This is same ground where Virender Sehwag made a world record - the second highest ODI score of 219 runs and the only second double-century in the history of cricket, till then (December 2011), which was against West Indies !!

Indore's older cricket stadium - the Nehru Stadium - also witnessed history being created in the last ever ODI staged there, on March 31, 2001, where the master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar became the first player ever in history of cricket to score 10,000 ODI runs; this was India's match against Australia, which India won, and Sachin scored 139 runs off 125 balls !!

At the Holkar Cricket Stadium, India has played four ODI matches, with India playing against England, West Indies, and South Africa, with the home team achieving a 100% winning record at this stadium !! India has never lost a cricket match against any country, at this stadium in Indore, until now (October 2016) !! Even at the older Indore cricket stadium, India had never lost any international match against any country since 1988 !!

The Holkar Stadium has also been the (second) home venue for the Kochi Tuskers team of the famous Indian Premier League (IPL) !! Two matches were played here in the 2011 season !!

India would also play a Test format match in this stadium against New Zealand, in 2016 !!
