M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore
he half-built M Chinnaswamy Stadium, previously called the Karnataka State Cricket Association Stadium, was given Test status in 1974 for what was the debut match for the West Indian duo of Viv Richards and Gordon Greenidge.
The stadium was renovated in 1996 when it hosted a thrilling India vs Pakistan World Cup quarter-final.
The cricket fans in the city got an unexpected bonus when the India vs England match was shifted here after Kolkata's Eden Gardens was ruled out because of delay in renovation work.
Bangalore will host five World Cup matches.
