M A Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

The 50,000 capacity MA Chidambaram Stadium is known for its knowledgeable crowd who gave a standing ovation to a victorious Pakistan team in 1997, something unimaginable elsewhere in the country.

A regular international venue since hosting the first Test in 1934 when Douglas Jardine's England took on CK Nayudu's India.

The stadium, formerly known as Chepauk, will host four World Cup matches.
