About Attraction

The Maharani Usha Raje Holkar Trust Stadium (Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket Ground), has been formally renamed as the Holkar Cricket Stadium, and has a seating capacity of around 30,000 spectators !! It is equipped with flood-lights for night matches, for all formats - T20s, ODIs and Tests !! The ground hosted its first-ever match on 15 April 2006: India v/s England, which India won by 7 wickets (with only 5 balls remaining) !!

This is same ground where Virender Sehwag made a world record - the second highest ODI score of 219 runs and the only second double-century in the history of cricket, till then (December 2011), which was against West Indies !! Another rocking fact about this match in Indore is that Indian Team scored its highest-ever ODI total of 418 runs !!

At the Holkar Cricket Stadium, India has played numerous ODI matches, against Australia, England, South Africa and West Indies, with the home team achieving a 100% winning record - India has never lost a cricket match against any country, at this stadium in Indore, until now (July 2019); that's so rocking !! Even at the older Indore cricket stadium, India had never lost any international match against any country since 1988 !!

The Holkar Stadium has also been the (second) home venue for the Kochi Tuskers team of the famous Indian Premier League (IPL) !! Two matches were played here in the 2011 season !! This ground also stages the majority of Madhya Pradesh cricket team's home matches in the Ranji Trophy !!

India also played a Test match at this Holkar Stadium against New Zealand, in 2016, which was also won by us by 321 runs; the stadium has also hosted third and the latest format of cricket - T20 International - played in Indore in December 2017 against Sri Lanka !! It is fascinating to note that our rocking Indian team won this match too, by 88 runs !! 

And another rocking fact about international cricket in Indore is that at the city's older cricket stadium - the Nehru Stadium - history was created in the last ever ODI staged there, on March 31, 2001, where the master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar became the first player ever in history of cricket to score 10,000 ODI runs; this was India's match against Australia, which India won, and Sachin scored 139 runs off 125 balls !!

I have visited this stadium for watching IPL cricket match. It was a wonderful experience. Stadium is located near race course road in indore. It is beautiful ground with lush green grass on the outfield. This Stadium is very big with seating more than 25000 persons and amazing place for sports lover…Well maintained and good parking space..
