Besides the Ranji Trophy and domestic First Class matches, the stadium has hosted some World Cup matches during 1996.

The stadium has also been a witness to Kenya's first-ever win over India on May 28, 1998 in a day-night match.
Pakistan has made the highest One-Day total here, making 289 (for 6) against Sri Lanka during the Pepsi Independence Cup match in 1997. Pakistan won the match by 30 runs.
