Notable Events About M Chinnaswamy Stadium
The stadium was given Test status in 1974-75 and hosted West Indies in the opening match, although the stadium was only half-built.
The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, located in Bangalore, Karnataka, is one of the premier cricket stadiums of India. Flanked by the picturesque Cubbon Park and uptown MG Road, this three-decade-old stadium is situated in the heart of the city of Bangalore. Formerly known as the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) stadium, the ground was later rechristened in tribute to Mr. M. Chinnaswamy, who had served the KSCA for four decades and was also president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) from 1977-1980.
