The Keenan Stadium in the steel city of Jamshedpur, which was the main venue of the association earlier, hosted ten ODIs from 1983-84 to 2005-06. The inaugural game was an explosive affair, as the West Indies rattled up 333-8 in only 45 overs, with Gordon Greenidge and Viv Richards scoring centuries. India batted well in response, with Sunil Gavaskar and Ashok Malhotra scoring fifties, but finished 104 runs short. The game between India and Pakistan in March 1987 was another high-scoring affair, which the home team lost. Put in to bat, India scored 265-3 from 44 overs, with Manoj Prabhakar scoring a hundred. Ijaz Ahmed and Javed Miandad then batted superbly to take their team to a five-wicket win with four balls to spare.
Interestingly, India figured in nine of the ten ODIs played at the Keenan Stadium, but they home team won only one of those – against South Africa in 1999-00.
England played two ODIs at the venue, and won both. The first of these games, played in March 1993, was affected by rain and reduced to a 26-overs-a-side encounter. England restricted India to 137-7, and Neil Fairbrother then scored an unbeaten 53 to take his team through. The second game was played in April 2006. Batting first, India were bowled out for 223, with James Anderson and Matthew Hoggard taking three wickets apiece. Andrew Strauss, who was leading England in the absence of the incumbent Andrew Flintoff, then scored 74 to set up a five-wicket win for his side.
