Barabati Stadium Profile

India’s Barabati Stadium is based in Cuttack, Odisha, and is one of the country’s oldest grounds. It hosts Test, ODI and T20I cricket as well as other sports such as football and hockey. The ground had previously been used by the now-defunct Deccan Charges in the Indian Premier League but is now an alternative home venue for the Kolkata Knight Riders. It is also used by the Odisha state team in the Ranji Trophy and Vijay Hazare Trophy.

Being one of the oldest grounds in India, the Barabati Stadium hosted a number of touring sides before it saw its first international action. Sides from the MCC, Australia and West Indies all played at the site. It has hosted more ODIs than any other international format. The first ODI took place at the ground in 1982 and at the time as only the third ODI to be held in India. India beat England on that occasion and Test action followed in 1987 when the home side defeated the Windies and Kapil Dev bagged his 300th Test wicket. The only other Test match to take place at Barabati saw New Zealand visit in the 1995-96 season.

Barabati has hosted games during two World Cups in 1987 and 1996 and continues to be a regular one-day venue for the India national team. The indoor cricket hall at the site is named of India great Sachin Tendulkar.

What to look for when betting on matches at Barabati Stadium

The Barabati pitch has been known for its assistance to spinners over the years and for its variable bounce. Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Anil Kumble and Ajit Agarkar top the wicket-taker charts for ODIs at Barabati with seven each. The track’s bounce can also help pace bowling from time to time as well.
