Venue description:

The stadium has seven different stands – Sunil Gavaskar Stand, North Stand, Vijay Merchant Stand, Sachin Tendulkar Stand, MCA Pavilion, Divecha Pavilion, and Garware Pavilion.

In 1996, Wankhede stadium underwent an upgrade, during which, floodlights were installed to provide excellent lighting to host the day and night cricket matches. Wankhede received its second upgrade in 2010-11 before the 2011 World Cup and the ground was unavailable for domestic and international cricket until February 2011. One of the highlights of the stadium is the suspended cantilever roofs. No beam supports on the roofs ensure better view for the spectators. The stadium has 20 elevators for North and South stands. After its renovation and installation of bucket seats the capacity of the Wankhede Stadium was reduced to around 33,000.

Venue history:

Mumbai has played host to Test matches at three different venues – the first ever Test in India was hosted at the Bombay Gymkhana in 1933-34 against England. After the second World War, Cricket Club of India’s (CCI) Brabourne Stadium became the city’s second ground. However, a dispute between the CCI and the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) over the allocation of tickets for cricket matches forced the latter to build a separate stadium. The stadium was named after the association’s president Barrister Sheshrao Krishnarao Wankhede. The initial capacity of the stadium was around 45,000. The first Test was staged in the season of 1974-75 when West Indies toured India.
