List of international cricket grounds in India

The 132,000-capacity Narendra Modi Stadium is the largest cricket stadium by capacity in the world

This is a list of international cricket grounds in India that have hosted at least one international cricket match. A cricket ground is a large grass field on which the game of cricket is played which are generally oval in shape with no fixed dimensions. A boundary rope usually demarcates the perimeter of the field and a cricket pitch, an area close to the centre of the field is where the batter hits the bowled ball and run between the wickets to score runs, while the fielding team tries to return the ball to either wicket to prevent this.[1]

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the national governing body of cricket in India.[2] The BCCI was established on 1 December 1928 at Madras and joined the Imperial Cricket Conference in 1926 which later became the International Cricket Council.[3][4] BCCI is a consortium of state cricket associations who own and operate most of the stadiums along with the respective state governments.

International cricket was held in India for the first time on 15 December 1933 when the Gymkhana Ground in Bombay hosted the only test match during England's tour of India.[5] India recorded its first win in fifth test of home series against England on 10 February 1952 at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Madras.[6][7] The first ODI match in India was hosted by the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad during the series against England on 25 November 1981.[8] India played the first T20I match in India at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on 20 October 2007 against the visiting Australian team.[9]

The first women's test match hosted by India began on 31 October 1976 with India playing West Indies at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium at Bangalore.[10] The first WODI was hosted during the 1978 Women's Cricket World Cup with Australia playing New Zealand on 1 January 1978 at Keenan Stadium in Jamshedpur.[11] India played its first WODI against England on the same day at Eden Gardens in Calcutta.[12] The first WT20I played in India was hosted on 4 March 2010 by Bandra Kurla Complex Ground in Mumbai against England.[13]

As of December 2023, 80 cricket venues have hosted an international match, the most in any country.
