The Brabourne Stadium is one of the oldest Cricket grounds located in the city of Mumbai in India. The stadium is owned by the Cricket Club of India.
The Brabourne Stadium played host for the Test series held in India from 1948 to 1972. The stadium was also the venue for the Bombay Pentangular matches. However, later on there were disputes and issues between the Brabourne Stadium and the CCI over the game ticketing arrangements. Thereafter, the Bombay Cricket Association got the Wankhede Stadium constructed at a short distance from the Brabourne Stadium. It was after the construction of the Wankhede Stadium that the Test matches were no longer held at the Brabourne Stadium. In fact, CCI rejected the use of the Brabourne Stadium and started to use the Wankhede Stadium for all Test matches.
Over the years, the Brabourne Stadium was capable of gaining its lost pride back. The international cricket was played on its ground. The ground played host in 2007 to the first T-20 International cricket game played in India. Its stadium was also used in 2006 for the ICC Champions Trophy. The Stadium further bloated up with pride when it hosted a Test match after 36 years in 2009. This helped the ground to create a record for the biggest break between two tests held at the same ground.
