The Gabba… Australia’s stronghold. Until the 2020-21 Border Gavaskar Trophy, Australia had not lost a single Test match for 32 years at the Gabba Stadium in Brisbane. Team India also has one such Gabba. Delhi is the capital of the country.

The Indian team, which defeated Australia by an innings of 132 runs in Nagpur, will leave for Delhi for the second Test. The second Test will be played at the Feroz Shah Kotla Cricket Stadium in Delhi. The central government has recently named it as Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium.

On November 10, 1948, the first Test match was played at the Delhi Cricket Stadium. In 2009, an ODI match between Sri Lanka and India was canceled due to a dangerous pitch. The ICC imposed a 12-month ban on this pitch as the ball hit the batsmen’s faces.

Team India, who last played a Test match against Sri Lanka in 2017, have not lost a single Test here for 36 years. Moreover, Team India has a solid record at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium. Hemu Adhikari and Ghulam Ahmed added 111 runs for the 9th wicket in a match against Pakistan in 1952. This is the world record for 9th wicket at that time…

In the 1969-70 series against Australia, Bishan Singh Bhedi and Errapalli Prasanna took 18 wickets together. Together these two gave team India a great victory by 7 wickets. Sunil Gavaskar scored his 29th Test century in 1983, equaling Don Bradman’s record here…

In 1999, Anil Kumble created a world record by taking 10 wickets in a single innings in a Test against Pakistan at this same stadium. Anil Kumble took 58 wickets in this stadium. Kapil Dev took 32 wickets and Ravichandran Ashwin scored 27 runs…

In 2005, Sachin Tendulkar scored a century (35th century) against Sri Lanka and broke Sunil Gavaskar’s record as the batsman who scored most centuries in Tests at this same stadium.

Virat Kohli, who is now under fire for his poor form in Tests, is the batsman with the highest individual score at the Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium. Virat Kohli became the top scorer by scoring 243 runs in this stadium on 2nd December 2017… This was also the last Test played in this stadium.
