Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore, Madhya Pradesh
The Holkar stadium, formerly known as Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket Ground. It also hosts most of Madhya Pradesh's Ranji Trophy matches and Duleep Trophy encounters. The ground has state-of-the-art facilities. The floodlit stadium has a seating capacity touching 30,000, which is the norm for most cricket grounds in the smaller cities of India. In 2011, the Pavilions were named after C.K Nayudu and Mushtaq Ali.
The wicket at the Holkar stadium usually favours the batsmen. With even bounce and short boundaries coming into play, batsmen tend to rule the roost. On expected lines, Sehwag played with sparkle and fizz, and composed that record-breaking double ton against the West Indies in 2011.
