Moin-ul-Haq Stadium is located in Rajendra Nagar, Patna, Bihar, India. The multi-purpose stadium has hosted three One Day International (ODI) matches including one from the 1996 Cricket World Cup. The stadium has a capacity of 25,000 people. It is used for cricket and association football. It is the home ground of Bihar Ranji Team. The government has proposed the stadium development expanding its seating capacity to 42,500. It is maintained by Bihar Cricket Association. Bihar Ranji Team had currently played many Ranji matches on this ground. It is named after Syed Muhammad Moin-ul-Haq, an Indian Sports administrator and former principal of Patna College.[1]


The stadium was previously known as Rajendra Nagar Stadium. It was renamed in 1970 after the death of icon Moin-ul-Haq, who was general secretary of Indian Olympic Association (IOA), India's chef-de-mission of the Indian Olympic contingent in 1948 to London and in 1952 to Helsinki, and one of the founding vice-presidents along with K A D Naoroji of the Bihar Cricket Association, in the year 1936 at Jamshedpur, of Bihar.[1]

Ground information

It was a state-of-the-art stadium in India with modern seating, equipment and facilities for players and spectators alike.[2] But as the stadium is being neglected by the Board of Control for Cricket in India when it comes to hosting of international match because of problem between the Bihar Cricket Association and the Board of Control for Cricket in India,[3] it has become totally outdated (more after the Indian Premier league emerged and other stadiums became Up-To-Date). After Jharkhand was carved out of Bihar, Bihar lost its Ranji Trophy team status. So, no Ranji Trophy matches are even held here. The stadium features a swimming pool and a cricket academy. It has a "Turf" pitch that follows the international standard. It is very near to Rajendra Nagar Terminal.
