    I had been to M.A. Chidambaram stadium several times. In fact most of the match days i was there, right from Ranji Trophy to Tests, ODIs, T20s, IPL. A wonderful stadium with cool breeze from the Sea. Marina beach is also one of the attractions. I love to watch the games from galleries and enjoy the fun with spectators including dancing, whistling, mexican wave. Since my boyhood days, i have been going to this stadium. Those days we use to carry Curd rice, Tamarind rice, idly etc along with friends and enjoy home food. I still cherish the great innings played by Gundappa Viswanath in 1975 against mighty West Indies. He scored a magnificient 97 runs unbeaten. Sachin Tendulkar's century in 2008 chasing 387 runs was also special. IPL matches were delightful, colourful. The TIE test in 1986 against Aussies.

    The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium was built in 1993 with a seating capacity of 40,000 spectators. The stadium is located at Sydenhams Road, Park Town behind the Chennai Central suburban railway station and the Ripon Building.

    The stadium has 400m 8-lane synthetic Athletic Track and a natural turf football pitch in the middle. Facilities for judo, weightlifting, table tennis, shooting and boxing have also been provided.The spectator seating all around the stadium is on two tiers (with each tier having two levels of seating) with stepped access from the outside, at ground level.The spectator seating in the stadium is segmented into 8 blocks (A to H).

    There are ten outer gates in the perimeter wall of the Stadium. Gate No1 is the main gate with a guardhouse and is used for stadium access by the players and the VVIPs.
