Eden Gardens Kolkata Capacity, Records, Weather Conditions, Pitch Report, Boundary Length, T20 Record, ODI Record, Location, Capacity All You Need Know

Eden Gardens is a cricket stadium located in Kolkata, India. After the recently completed Narendra Modi Venue, it is India’s oldest and second-largest cricket stadium. The current capacity of the facility is 68,000 persons. The venue hosted India’s first-ever day/night Test match versus Bangladesh during the second Test on November 22nd, 2019.

The Eden Gardens, along with the MCG, is cricket’s counterpart to the Coliseum. It initially hosted a Test match in the early days of Indian cricket, with Douglas Jardine’s team winning in four days in 1934. Since then, it has become something of a pilgrimage for most international cricketers, a chance to show off their skills in front of the game’s most passionate and loud crowd.

Pitch Report.

The BCCI has twice awarded Kolkata’s Eden Gardens Cricket Field as the greatest cricket ground in India. It is the largest cricket stadium in India and the world’s second largest.

Batsmen must be cautious in the early stages on the Eden Gardens ground. Because there is a lot of green grass on this surface, it helps quick bowlers. In Test matches, there is a lot of swing in the first innings because the groundskeepers put grass on the wicket, but as time goes on, it gets easier to bat on in the second and third days. On the fourth and fifth days, the ball begins to turn very considerably due to the bowler’s foot marks, thus spin spinners also receive aid with the pitch, and that period is the most difficult to bat on the Eden Gardens pitch.
