Sawai Mansingh Stadium profile

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium’s popularity as ground for noteworthy matches was dying until Lalit Modi took charge of the Rajasthan Cricket Association prior to the launch of the Indian Premier League in 2008.

Four-times champions Mumbai Indians have even used it as an alternative venue to the Wankhede Stadium on occasion. The ground hosted World Cup matches in 1987 and 1996 – and in 2006 was used during the Champions Trophy.

What to look for when betting on matches in Jaipur

Unlike so many others around India, this is not that much of a high-scoring ground. No IPL team has reached 200 here – bet365’s markets for bowlers are often attractive when IPL cricket comes to Jaipur.
