Chidambaram, a former President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the stadium is steeped in heritage. With its red-bricked stands and the majestic Chepauk Palace as a backdrop, it's a sight to behold. This stadium is also where the very first Ranji Trophy match was played between Madras & Mysore.
