Located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium was built in 1937. The grounds are among the most beautiful in India. And the 2nd oldest ground after Eden Garden Kolkata. The BCCI has included this cricket ground in the list of the Final Nine Venues. However, the ICC inspection team must inspect it before making a final decision.
Formerly the ground was known as Madras Cricket Club Ground but was named after M. A. Chidambaram Chettiar who was the former President of BCCI & Head of TNCA.
The capacity of the ground is a huge one. It can occupy 50000 cricket lovers at a time. So, plenty of spectators can enjoy the live-action. But this COVID-19 has demolished everything. There may be no entrance of crowds. Only players and officials will be allowed to enter the ground.
The nickname of the stadium is Chepauk Stadium. The ICC T20 World Cup matches list that will be played on this very ground has not yet been decided. But we expect an excessive amount of games to be played here.
The ground was completely renewed in 2009. New reinforced cement stands were built. The innovation has increased the capacity of the ground a great deal. New futuristic architecture has made the stadium an eye-catching venue.
