MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai
Also known as Chepauk and the Madras Cricket Club, the stadium can hold a maximum of 50,000 spectators with floodlights being installed since the 1996 World Cup. The stadium is the home ground to the Tamil Nadu Ranji team and the Chennai Superkings. M A Chidambaram Stadium hosted its first Test match between England and India in 1933. Among the other achievements to be witnessed here are Sunil Gavaskatr's record-breaking 30th century, Narendra Hirwani's 16 for 136 against the West Indies and Pakistan batsman Saeed Anwar's 194 against India in 1997.

Chepauk's first match was played 10 February 1934. Built by the East Coast Constructions and Industries, this stadium is where the Indian cricket team won its first ever Test victory here in 1952 against England. The Chepauk crowd is known to be amongst the most appreciative in the country. Testimony tothe fact was when those present gave a standing ovation to Pakistan's Saeed Anwar after his record breaking 194 against India in the Independence Cup match in 1997 and again when Pakistan won a Test match in 1999. A truly overwhelmed Pakistani team even made a lap of honour in appreciation of the spectators' sporting behaviour.
