M. A. Chidambaram Stadium or Chepauk Stadium is a cricket Stadium. The stadium is located in Chennai, India. The spiritual home of cricket in the state since the start of the Presidency matches in 1916, the MA Chidambaram Stadium, known for its sporting pitches.

It is better known as Chepauk Ground. The first test match played here was in 1933-34 between Douglas Jardine’s England and CK Naidu’s India. For long test matches at Chepauk were synonyms with the Pongal (Harvest) festival. History was made with the first ever Ranji Trophy match played at the venue when AG Ram Singh with 11 wickets, bowled Madras to victory over Mysore within a day.

India recorded their first win at the ground in 1951-52 when they defeated England by an innings and eight runs. Sunil Gavaskar has notched up his record-breaking 30th test hundred on this ground in 1983-84. The India Australia encounter in 1986-87 ended in a tie – only the second in the game’s long history. The next season leg-spinner Narendra Hirwani claimed the best match analysis by a player on Test debut, finishing with 16 for 136.

But more than the records what stands out at Chepauk is the atmosphere and crowd. The Chepauk crowd is considered as the most knowledgeable and appreciative in the country. This was proved when those present gave a standing ovation to Saeed Anwar after his record-breaking 194 against India in the Independence cup match in 1997 and again when Pakistan won the test match in 1999.

However, since India started playing the spin quartet of Bishan Singh Bedi, BS Chandrasekar, S Venkatraghavan and EAS Prasanna, the wickets were made spin-friendly. Taking a look at the stats gives you a clear indication as to what type of bowlers hold the aces on the Chepauk wicket.

Among the top 10 wicket takers at the ground nine of them are spinners and the only fast bowler included on the list was Kapil Dev. Anil Kumble with 48 wickets was at the top of the list followed very closely by Harbhajan Singh with 42 wickets.
