Perfect cricket ground but far away from main road. Have seen test matches but good for Ipl and one day international matches. You have to park your vehicle then walk to enter stadium. Sitting arrangements good but seats are not well conditioned.
It is one of the heritages of Delhi(been one of the oldest cricket stadiums) and the kotla fort in vicinity is an added advantage for visit when you go for a cricket match there. The stadium is old & shabby compared to modern day stadiums but has its own touch and grace which you don’t find with most stadiums around the country.
