The Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune is one of India’s new kids on the block for the tour of 2016-17. The new 36,000 seater opened in 2012, missing the deadline for the 2011 World Cup but adding to a growing list of quality venues in India. England were the visitors for Pune’s first ever international when the hosts posted a five wicket T20 victory. With unobstructed views of the pitch and top-notch facilities it promises to be the ideal venue for a day of fast-paced quality cricket. Even if it pours interruptions to play should be brief thanks to a revolutionary new drainage system.
