The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is one of the premier cricket stadiums of India. It is located in the heart of the city of Bangalore, Karnataka. It can accommodate approximately 40000 spectators during a match. The Chinnaswamy Stadium has also housed India’s National Cricket Academy since 2000. After the BCCI chose Bangalore as the centre for the National Cricket Academy in 2000, many budding cricketers have passed out of the Academy housed on this ground. The pitch at the venue is said to be bouncy and pacy, which is very unprecedented when you take into consideration that pitches in India generally assist spinners.
