History

The stadium was established in 1974 with the seating capacity of 45,000. It staged its first Test in the 1974-75 season when the Windies toured India. West India won that match with 201 runs thanks to Clive Lloyd’s unbeaten 242. India's first victory here was posted against New Zealand two years later.

The first one day international was held on 17 Jan, 1987, between India and Sri Lanka, where India won by 10 runs, thanks to 108 runs by Mohammad Azharuddin

The stadium underwent renovations over the years, bringing the capacity to the current number of about 33000.

Major Matches

The stadium has hosted six matches during the 1987,1996 and 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, including finals of 2011 between India and Sri Lanka. India won that match to lift second world cup trophy after 28 years.

Sachin Tendulkar played his last test match on this very stadium against West Indies from 14-16 November 2013, followed by an extraordinary farewell speech by the Master Blaster. The stadium management has named one of the stands on Sachin’s name as a mark of respect.

In 2015, South Africa has scored 438 in an ODI innings against India which is the highest total in an ODI on this stadium.

Controversies

In 2012, during an IPL match the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan got into a brawl with the security guards at the Wankhede Stadium. The stadium officials alleged Shahrukh of being drunk and misbehaving in the stand and he was banned from entering the stadium for 5 years.

Recent Matches


In the last test match played in the stadium on 8 December 2016 Virat Kohli scored an incredible double century against England. He also scored a century in the last ODI played in the stadium against New Zealand on 22 October 2017.
