With not much grass on the wicket and a history of favouring batsmen more than bowlers the Rajkot Municipal Corporation Cricket Ground has been a belter over the past few years.

Lush and thick grass makes the outfield very fast.

The highest score on this ground is 349 for nine by New Zealand in 1999 when Nathan Astle slammed 120 — the highest score at the venue .

The last time India played here in (2000 against Zimbabwe), the home team posted a heathy total of 301 for six and won the match easily.

India's record at this venue, though, has been something to boast about. The hosts have played six one-dayer, won two and lost four.
