Stats - Test Matches

Highest score: 557/5 declared by India vs New Zealand – Oct 2016
Lowest score: 150/10 by Bangladesh vs India – Nov 2019

Virat Kohli’s double-century and Ajinkya Rahane’s near double-ton were the backbone of India’s big total against the Black Caps. Cheteshwar Pujara then showed how good the conditions were for batting by scoring a ton in the second innings.

Stats - ODI Matches

Highest score: 418/5 by India vs West Indies – Dec 2011
Lowest score: 225/10 by South Africa vs India – Oct 2015

Few grounds have witnessed a total in the 400s or a batsman strike an ODI double-century. The Holkar Cricket Stadium is one of the few, thanks to Virender Sehwag and India’s feat against the West Indies.

Highest score: 260/5 by India vs Sri Lanka – Dec 2017
Lowest score: 172/10 by Sri Lanka vs India – Dec 2017

The ground has only hosted one T20I. Rohit Sharma hit a ton and KL Rahul almost did the same. Sri Lanka’s bowlers were hit all around the park, before Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took four wickets in an easy win for the hosts.

Holkar Cricket Stadium profile

Formerly known as the Maharani Usharaje Trust Cricket Ground, the Holkar Cricket Stadium was renamed in 2010. It was renamed after the Holkar dynasty of the Marathas, which used to rule Indore. The Holkar Stadium effectively took over from Indore’s other international cricket ground, Nehru Stadium, which last hosted international cricket in 2001.

Holkar Stadium was announced as one of six new Test venues in India and in 2016 hosted its first when New Zealand toured.

What to look for when betting on matches in Indore

This is a very high-scoring ground, where Virender Sehwag has scored an ODI double-century, India have hit a total of 260 in a T20I and the Kings XI Punjab have struck the fourth-highest score in the history of the Indian Premier League. Indore doesn’t have one of the 20 lowest scores in the IPL, showing that it really is one of the highest-scoring grounds, which makes for interesting batting betting markets.
