With a capacity of 40,000, it hosted its first test in 1969 between India and New Zealand and the first ODI between India and England on January 23, 1985. Known as the winter capital of Maharashtra, it is a city famous for oranges. The tenth Test venue in the country, the Vidharbha Cricket Association is remembered both for good and bad reasons - Sunil Gavaskar got his only one-day century here and it was a sad hour when in 1995, during the fifth game of the India-New Zealand ODI series, the brick wall at the East stand collapsed and nine people died. Also the wicket here is quite unique - it is 30-inches deep double-brick layer while normally there is a 15-inch brick layer.
