The Gangotri Glades Cricket Ground (Kannada: ಗಂಗೋತ್ರಿ ಗ್ಲೇಡ್ಸ್), located in Mysuru, Karnataka, is a cricket stadium in India, located on the campus of the University of Mysore.[1] It was renamed Srikantadatta Narasimha Raja Wadeyar Ground upon Prince of Mysuru Kingdom Prince Srikanta Wadiyar.[2]

The Chamundi hills provide an idyllic backdrop, and the iconic Kukkarahalli lake is just a big-hit away. It has a seating capacity of about 15,000. It was constructed by the University of Mysore.

In 1997, the Karnataka State Cricket Association entered into a 20-year agreement with the university to develop and maintain the ground as part of its efforts to promote the game in smaller centres. It was in 2007 that a new pavilion complex was constructed and the stadium got a facelift, making it fit to host Ranji Trophy matches.[3]

This ground is the next home ground for the Karnataka Cricket Team after the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium . This ground is covered with Bermuda Grass.[citation needed]

History and development

The University of Mysore needed a quality cricket ground in Mysore. Nadig Constructions took up the Earth Moving and Ground Creation Activities and completed in 1993. This Ground was Inaugurated on July 20, 1993 by Karnataka Sports Council Chairman Prakash Padukone, BCCI Secretary C Nagaraj, KSCA Vice President Kasturi rangan, KSCA Mysore Zonal Committe Member Satyanarayana S Nadig, Minister for Higher education S M Yahya, University of Mysore Vice Chancelleor Dr. M Madaiah, University of Mysore Registrar Evaluation A K Monnappa, Former Test Cricketer Syed Kirmani, Varsity Senate Member Venkatesh, University of Mysore registrar Pattanayak, Karnataka State Cricket team Captain Karthik Jeswanth and Ideal Jawa Cricketer V Prabhakar.

Ground was later upgraded to stadium in 1996/1997, just in time for the 1997 Women's Cricket World Cup and hosted a game between Denmark women and Pakistan women and later Karnataka State Cricket Association made a 20-year deal to maintain and develop this ground.[citation needed]This wicket is most suitable for batsmen but also provides assistance to bowlers with its pace and bounce. Many games, which are held here are high scoring games but records show that Fast Bowlers have excelled here.

First there is some swing and pace on the track and bowlers have an advantage, but as the game progresses it suits the batsmen.[citation needed]
