This will be the first time the cricket ball will roll down the grass for 100 overs during the day-night match, as the stadium will come alive for an ODI. After hosting its first Twenty-Twenty cricket match of IPL edition 2012, the stadium has come a long way with 17 matches being played from IPL 2012, 2013 editions and 1 international T20 match between India and England. The stadium sits amidst picturesque mountains giving it an amazing location and pleasant weather all throughout the year giving the crowd a memorable experience. The stadium is expected to erupt with cheers from thousands of fans, following the sound of the ball hitting the stumps or hitting the 'sweet spot' of the bat on Sunday, 13th October 2013!!



For a background on the stadium history, in 2005, the decision to build a new stadium was taken by Maharashtra Cricket Association. The ground breaking ceremony was done on 21st October 2007, by Mr. Sharad Pawar, the then President of Board of Control for Cricket in India in presence of various dignitaries of BCCI including Mr. Shashank Manohar, Mr. N. Srinivasan, Mr. Niranjan Shah and Mr. Ajit Pawar. Following a soft opening of the ground by Mr. Shashank Manohar, the first Ranji trophy game was played here between Maharashtra and Himachal Pradesh on 21st December, 2011. On 1st April, 2012, a grand opening ceremony was organized by Maharashtra Cricket Association to inaugurate the stadium. On this auspicious occasion, the ribbon cutting was done by Mr. Sharad Pawar, and the statue of D.B. Deodhar was unveiled by Chief Minister of the State of Maharashtra, Mr. Prithviraj Chavan and Mr. Ajit Pawar, Deputy Chief Minister of State of Maharashtra.
