List of international cricket centuries at Brabourne Stadium

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Since Brabourne hosted its first Test match in 1948, 35 Test centuries have been made at the ground.[1][2]

Brabourne Stadium is a cricket ground in Mumbai, India. It is the home of the Cricket Club of India and has played host to Ranji Trophy matches (including seventeen finals)[3] and Indian Premier League matches,[4] as well as being a Test, One Day International and Twenty20 International (T20) venue. It has a capacity of 20,000 spectators. The ground has hosted eighteen Test matches, the first in 1948 when India played the West Indies. It has also staged eight One Day International matches, the first of which was in 1989 when Australia lost to Pakistan by 66 runs. One T20 International has been played at the ground when India beat Australia by 7 wickets in 2007 (first T20 International to be played in India).[5][6][7] Of the eight One Day Internationals played at the stadium, five matches (including the final) were staged during the ICC Champions Trophy in 2006.[8]

The first Test century (100 or more runs in a single innings) scored at the ground was in 1948 by the West Indian Allan Rae in the first innings of the first Test match played at Brabourne Stadium. The first Indian to score a century at the Brabourne was Rusi Modi in the third innings of the same match.[9] In total, 35 Test centuries have been scored at the ground in 18 Test matches.[1][2] Virender Sehwag's 293, scored against Sri Lanka in 2009, is the highest Test innings achieved at the ground. The highest Test score by an overseas player is 194 by the West Indian Everton Weekes in 1948.[1] Vijay Hazare has scored the most Test centuries at the ground with four.[10]

No centuries have been scored in the eight One Day International matches and only T20 International played at Brabourne Stadium.[11][12] Australian Adam Gilchrist holds the record for the highest One Day International innings score at the ground, 92 against the West Indies in 2006. The highest score by an Indian in a One Day International played here is 48 by Vinod Kambli against New Zealand in 1995.[13] Gilchrist's compatriot Ricky Ponting holds the record for the highest T20 International innings score at the ground, 76 against India in 2007. The highest score by an Indian in a T20 International at the Brabourne is 63 by Gautam Gambhir in the same match.[14]
