Indore is hosting an ODI after two years. In 2015, India took on South Africa and MS Dhoni’s side won the match by 22 runs. This will be the fifth international game at the Holkar Stadium, which earlier hosted IPL games. In 2016, Holkar Stadium was one of the new Test venues where India took on New Zealand. In that match, Virat Kohli scored his maiden double ton (211) to help India win by 321 runs and sweep the series 3-0.
