Ground profile

The stadium's first one-day international was held in 1988, when West Indies beat India by 73 runs, a match in which Narendra Hirwani made his one-day debut. Floodlights were installed in preparation for the 1996 Cricket World Cup fixture, also between India and West Indies. The stadium was also the venue for the first and only day-night Ranji Trophy final in 1996. The match was played between Mumbai and Delhi over five days and Mumbai won on the basis of a first-innings lead.

The pitch at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium has traditionally favoured the batsmen. In eight of the 10 ODIs, the team batting first has scored over 250. It has also been very lucky for most of the cricketers from India in India,[1] especially Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

A pavilion at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium is named after Sachin Tendulkar who made the history by becoming the first cricketer to score a double century in an ODI.[1]

In May 1998, Kenya beat India by 69 runs in ODI for first time. As Kenya sailed confidently into the final of Coca-Cola Triangular Series.

It was their fifth win at this level, and their second over a Test nation. Ravindu Shah notching his third fifty in only his fourth one-day international, dominated the first phase of the innings. When he fell for 70 including 50 in boundaries, the score was 93. For once, Kenya built on their sound start.

Maurice Odumbe peppered his 91-ball 83 with five sixes, while Hitesh Modi contributed a run-a-ball fifty. In India's reply, eight batsmen made it to double figures, but none beyond 33. Maurice Odumbe followed his biggest score in one-day internationals with his best bowling, taking three for 14 with his off-spin.

In February 2010, in a match between India and South Africa where India scored 401/3 and Sachin Tendulkar became the first male cricketer ever to score a double century in an ODI ending on 200 not out. This match was comfortably won by India by 153 runs, where South Africa was bowled out for 248 in 42.5 Overs.
