This 60,000 seater stadium is the largest in Uttar Pradesh and is the major international stadium in the state, playing host to numerous ODI and International test fixtures. The Uttar Pradesh State cricket team play at the stadium and the stadium has been recently renovated.

Renovation brought floodlighting and large screen displays to the ground, however the unique old fashioned score board was kept. It remains as the largest manually operated scoreboard in the world.
