All You Need to Know About the Venue For the Second Test | Hyderabad

Established: 2004

Capacity: 55,000

Location: Hyderabad, India

Home to: Hyderabad, Sunrisers Hyderabad

The stadium hosted its first international game in 2005 when India and South Africa faced off in an ODI. The visiting side won the match by five wickets. This stadium has been home to the now-discarded Deccan Chargers (2008-2012) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (2013-present) in the Indian Premier League, which started in 2008.

How does the pitch play?

The wicket here is considered flat but tends to slow down as the game progresses. The tracks are more favourable to the spinners. India almost chased down a target of 351 against Australia in 2009. Sachin Tendulkar scored 175 but the hosts fell short by three runs.

History of Tests

India have played fours Tests here and won three, while one against New Zealand in 2010 ended in a draw. They defeated New Zealand (2012) and Australia (2013) by innings, and then outclassed Bangladesh by 208 runs in 2017. Both R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have a superb record here.

While Ashwin has 24 wickets in three Tests, including three five-wicket hauls and a ten-wicket match haul, Jadeja has 12 wickets in the two games that he has played at this venue.
