10 venues where India no longer play international matches
Will India ever return to play a game at these venues?
India played their first international match at home against Australia at the Bombay Gymkhana in 1933. Since then, they have played at various other centers around the country on numerous occasions.
However, with the passage of time, as India developed, so did its infrastructure and some of the older grounds gave way to swanky new structures.
We look at 10 such grounds where India no longer play international cricket.
#10 IPCL Stadium, Vadodara
In the early 90s, India played quite a few matches at the Indian Petroleum Corporation Ltd. Sports Complex ground in Vadodara.
They played their first match here in 1994 against New Zealand, winning the contest by 7 wickets, while the last match was played in 2009, also against the same team, where the hosts won by nine wickets.
The ground played host to Sachin Tendulkar's 400th ODI against Australia in 2007. Incidentally, he is the highest run-getter at the venue with 442 runs. He made three centuries at this venue and was the Player of the Match in each of those instances.
Mitchell Johnson's figures of 5 for 22 is the best by any bowler at this venue, which has never played host to a Test match.
