M Chinnaswamy Stadium profile

The M Chinnaswamy Stadium was first called the Karnataka State Cricket Association Stadium before being renamed after Mangalam Chinnaswamy. He was the Indian board president from in the late 1970s.

Construction of the stadium started toward the end of Chinnaswamy’s tenure and the ground was given Test status in 1975. West Indian greats Gordon Greenidge and Viv Richards made their Test debuts here, while Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar played his last Test match here. Pakistani Inzamam-ul-Haq played his 100th Test here. Indian Anil Kumble’s 400th Test wicket was taken at this ground.

Floodlights were installed here for the 1996 World Cup. The bulk of the stadium’s electricity is powered by solar panels. Before the first IPL in 2008, the stadium was given a makeover. It was painted red and yellow to fit in with the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s colours.

What to look for when betting on matches at the Chinnaswamy

Virat Kohli is the man to back for the most runs in matches here. He is a master at setting totals and backs himself to chase down big targets too. Kohli as the top-scorer at the Kotla, in any tournament or format, is good for cricket betting.
