Pune, 16th October 2023 : Pune’s Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium in Gahunje is all set to host a thrilling India versus Bangladesh clash in the ICC ODI World Cup. The excitement doesn’t end there, with four more matches scheduled to follow in this iconic venue. The history of cricket at this stadium dates back to the first ODI held on the 13th of October 2013, when India faced off against Australia.

The anticipation is palpable as the Indian cricket team touched down at Pune airport on Sunday, arriving at around 4:30 p.m. The Bangladesh team, eager for the showdown, arrived a day earlier. The teams have chosen their accommodations, with the Indian team staying at JW Marriott on SB Road, and the Bangladeshi team opting for Conrad Hotel in the city. Both teams are gearing up for their practice sessions at the MCA Stadium on Tuesday, the 17th of October.

While the stadium has witnessed many remarkable matches, the latest international ODI took place on the 28th of March 2021 when India faced England. The most recent international match was on the 5th of January 2023 when India played against Sri Lanka. The stadium not only hosts international matches but also serves as the backdrop for numerous domestic and IPL matches. Pune’s cricket enthusiasts are eager to witness the match live in the stadium and are determined to secure their spot.

Despite the stadium’s pitch, which is not particularly favourable for either batting or bowling, the historical data indicates that teams batting first have a higher success rate. Of the seven matches played in this stadium, four were won by the team batting first, while three were won by the team bowling first. The average first innings score is an impressive 300, while the average second innings score stands at 281. Although only one India match is scheduled at this venue, fans are assured of an exciting match regardless of the outcome.
